Ripple Price Analysis
Yesterday, we discussed the chances of a larger breakout in ripple if it breaks $0.2000 against the US Dollar. However, XRP price failed to gain strength above $0.1950 and $0.2000.
As a result, there was a fresh decline and the price broke the key $0.1920 and $0.1900 support levels. Moreover, there was a close below $0.1900 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Finally, the price traded below $0.1880 and tested the $0.1840 support area. A low is formed near $0.1840 and ripple is currently consolidating losses. An initial resistance is seen near the $0.1860 level.
Besides, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $0.1928 high to $0.1840 low is also near the $0.1860 level. The first key resistance on the upside is near the $0.1880 level.
Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $0.1928 high to $0.1840 low is near the $0.1880 level. More importantly, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $0.1920 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.
Therefore, ripple price is clearly facing a lot of hurdles on the upside near the $0.1880 and $0.1900 levels. If there is an upside correction, the bears are likely to protect gains above $0.1900 in the near term.
