Ripple Price Analysis
Recently, there was a sharp decline in bitcoin, Ethereum and ripple against the US Dollar. XRP/USD declined heavily below the $0.3800 and $0.3500 support levels. It opened the doors for more losses below the $0.3460 support level. Moreover, the price even broke the $0.3200 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, the price traded close to the $0.3000 level and a new monthly low was formed near the $0.3035.
Recently, there was an upside correction above the $0.3150 and $0.3200 levels. The price climbed above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.3626 high to $0.3035 low. However, the upward move was capped by the $0.3400 level. Besides, there is a new breakout pattern forming with resistance near $0.3320 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.
The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.3626 high to $0.3035 low also acted as a hurdle recently. It seems like ripple price might correct higher above the $0.3320 resistance area. However, the bulls are likely to face a strong resistance near the $0.3400 or $0.3460 level. The main resistance on the upside is near the $0.3750 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
On the other hand, if the price fails to correct above $0.3400 or $0.3460, there could be a fresh decline. An immediate support is near the $0.3180 level. If there is a downside break below $0.3180, the price is likely to revisit the $0.3030 or $0.3000 level.
