Ripple Price Analysis
In the past two sessions, bitcoin price extended gains above $12,800 and $13,000. However, ripple price failed to break the $0.4080 and $0.4100 resistance levels. The last swing high was near the $0.4078 and recently the price declined below the $0.4040 support. Moreover, there was a break below key $0.4020 and $0.4000 support levels. The price even spiked below the $0.3920 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
More importantly, this week’s followed key bullish trend line was breached with support near $0.4015 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair traded as low as $0.3903 and it is currently correcting higher. It broke the $0.3940 level plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.4078 swing high to $0.3903 low.
On the upside, there are a few important resistances formed near the $0.3990 and $0.4000 levels. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.4078 swing high to $0.3903 low is near the $0.3990 level to act as a resistance. There is also a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $0.4000 on the same chart for ripple.
Therefore, a successful close above the $0.3900 and $0.4000 levels is needed for a fresh recovery. However, the price may continue to struggle near the $0.4080 and $0.4100 resistance levels. A convincing break above the $0.4100 level is needed for a sharp recovery in the coming sessions.
