Ripple price is trading with a bearish below key supports against the US Dollar and bitcoin. XRP price might soon test the $0.3000 support level if the bears remain in action.
Ripple Price Analysis
After topping near the $0.3320 resistance, ripple price declined steadily against the US Dollar. Ethereum price also declined recently below the $220 support, but bitcoin price remained stable near $11,800. The XRP/USD pair is following a bearish path and it recently broke the $0.3200 and $0.3120 support levels. Moreover, there was a break below the $0.3080 support. Finally, the price settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average and a swing low was formed near $0.3038.
At the moment, the price is correcting higher towards the $0.3080 level. However, there are many resistances near the $0.3080 and $0.3100 levels. Moreover, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the main decline from the $0.3317 high to $0.3038 low is also near $0.3104. More importantly, there are two key bearish trend lines forming with resistance near $0.3100 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.
Above the second trend line, the next resistance is near the $0.3120 level. However, the main resistances are near $0.3150, the 100 hourly SMA, and the $0.3180 level. Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the main decline from the $0.3317 high to $0.3038 low is near the $0.3177 level to act as a resistance. Therefore, ripple bulls might struggle to push the price above the $0.3100 and $0.3120 resistance levels.
On the downside, the $0.3040 level is an immediate support. If there is a downside break below $0.3040, the price could test the $0.3000 support area. Any further losses may perhaps lead the price towards the $0.2920 support.
