Ripple Price Analysis
This past week, there was a fresh decrease in bitcoin, Ethereum, bitcoin cash, ADA and ripple against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair failed to climb above the $0.4090 and $0.4100 resistance levels. As a result, there was a strong decline below the $0.3750 support level. Moreover, there was a break below the $0.3500 support area and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). It opened the doors for more losses and the price even broke the $0.3000 support.
A swing low was formed at $0.2988 and the price is currently correcting higher. It broke the $0.3050 level plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $0.3507 low to $0.2988 high. However, there are many resistances near the $0.3200 and $0.3250 levels. Moreover, there is a declining channel forming with resistance near $0.3205 on the 4-hours chart of the XRP/USD pair.
The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $0.3507 low to $0.2988 high is also near the $0.3204 level to act as a resistance. If there is a recovery above $0.3200 and $0.3250, the price could test the next major resistance is near $0.3360. The main resistance for the current downtrend is at $0.3500, above which the price may move into a positive zone.
