Moreover, there was a close below the $0.2600 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Ripple extended its decline below the $0.2580 level and traded close to the $0.2520 level.
A swing low was formed near $0.2527 and the price is currently correcting higher. It traded above the $0.2550 level plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.2672 high to $0.2527 low. Moreover, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $0.2565 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. Above the trend line, the next resistance is near the $0.2590 level and the 100 hourly SMA.
Finally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.2672 high to $0.2527 low is near the $0.2600 level to act as a resistance. The main resistance for the bulls is near the $0.2650 level, above which there are chances of a solid upward move in the coming days. In the mentioned case, ripple could surge towards the $0.2800 and $0.2820 levels.
Conversely, if the price continues to struggle below $0.2600 and $0.2650, there could be additional losses. An immediate support is near the $0.2520 and $0.2500 levels. Below $0.2500, the price could tumble sharply towards the $0.2400 level in the near term.
