Ripple price is slowly grinding lower against the US Dollar and bitcoin. XRP/USD must stay above $0.3080 and the 100 hourly SMA to stage a comeback. If not, it could decline heavily towards $0.3020.
Ripple Price Analysis
After a decent upward move, ripple price faced a strong resistance near the $0.3200 level against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair formed a short-term top near the $0.3197 and later started a steady decline. The price broke the $0.3150 and $0.3140 support levels to move into a bearish zone. Besides, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.2994 low to $0.3197 high. Sellers took control and pushed the price below the $0.3120 support level.
However, the price is now approaching a crucial support near the $0.3080 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.2994 low to $0.3197 high. More importantly, the 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned near the $0.3080 support area. Therefore, there could be a strong buying interest near the $0.3075-0.3080 zone. If there is a downside break below $0.3080, the price is likely to move into a downtrend. The next key support is near the $0.3040 level and the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.2994 low to $0.3197 high.
At the outset, there is a new declining channel formed with resistance at $0.3125 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair needs to overcome selling interest and clear the channel resistance $0.3130. However, the main resistance is at $0.3150, above which the price is likely to revisit the $0.3200 resistance area.
