Ripple Price Analysis
In the past two days, there was a steady decline in XRP price from the $0.2920 resistance against the US Dollar. The recent decline accelerated after the price broke the key $0.2850 support level. Moreover, the price settled below the $0.2800 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It opened the doors for more losses and the price recently declined below the main $0.2700 support.
Ripple price traded as low as $0.2581 recently and it is currently consolidating losses. It traded above the $0.2620 level plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $0.2749 high to $0.2581 low. However, the price failed to climb above the $0.2660 level. It seems like there are many hurdles forming near the $0.2660, $0.2680 and $0.2700 levels.
The recent failure was near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $0.2749 high to $0.2581 low. Moreover, there is a major declining channel forming with resistance near $0.2680 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. Above the channel resistance, the next major resistance is near the $0.2700 level. The 100 hourly SMA is also waiting near the $0.2750 level to prevent gains.
On the downside, an immediate support is near the $0.2580 swing low. If there is a downside break below $0.2580, ripple price is likely to revisit the $0.2500 support area. In the mentioned case, there is a risk of more downsides below $0.2500 and the price could trade to a new monthly low.
