Ripple Price Analysis
After a successful close above $0.3000 and $0.3100, ripple price gained bullish momentum against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair rallied significantly above the $0.3500 resistance and gained more than 15%. The bulls took control after there was a close above the $0.3200 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Recently, bitcoin price rallied above the $7,800 and $8,000 levels, which helped altcoins such as Ethereum and ripple in moving higher.
During the rise, there was a break above a major contracting triangle with resistance at $0.3240 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair surged above the key $0.3550 and $0.3600 resistance levels. There was even a spike above the $0.3750 level and the price traded as high as $0.3778. It is currently correcting lower below $0.3700. An immediate support is $0.3640 and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.3212 swing low to $0.3778 high.
On the downside, there are many supports above the $0.3400 and $0.3450 levels. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.3212 swing low to $0.3778 high is also near the $0.3495 level. Therefore, if there is a downside correction, the price may find bids near the $0.3550, $0.3500 or $0.3495 levels. On the upside, the $0.3750 and $0.3800 levels are initial hurdles. A successful break above $0.3800 is likely to set the pace for more upsides above the $0.4000 level in the coming sessions.
