Ripple Price Analysis
Yesterday, XRP price made another attempt to surpass the $0.2650 resistance area against the US Dollar. However, the bulls failed to gain momentum, resulting in bearish moves below the $0.2620 support area. The price even traded below the $0.2600 support level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. On the other hand, bitcoin is still trading near the $10,500 support level, with positive moves.
Recently, ripple price broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the last major move from the $0.2509 low to $0.2673 high. Moreover, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support at $0.2620 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair is now trading near the $0.2580 support area. Additionally, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last major move from the $0.2509 low to $0.2673 high is near the $0.2575 level.
If the price continues to slide, it could test the $0.2540 support level. Any further declines might push the price back towards the main $0.2500 support level. On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the $0.2600 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, there is a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near the $0.2605 on the same chart.
If there is a successful close above the $0.2600 and $0.2605 resistance levels, the price could climb above $0.2620. If there are more upsides, the price could retest the main $0.2650 resistance area in the near term.
