Ripple Price Analysis
Recently, there was a decent rise in ripple price above the $0.3220 resistance against the US Dollar, coupled with gains in Ethereum and bitcoin. The XRP/USD pair climbed above the $0.3300 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the bulls failed to clear the $0.3320 resistance area. A swing high was formed near $0.3317 and the price started a sharp decline.
There was a break below the $0.3250 and $0.3220 support levels. Moreover, the price broke the key $0.3200 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, the price dived below the $0.3100 level and traded as low as $0.3065. It is currently correcting higher above $0.3100. An immediate resistance is near the $0.3125 level. Additionally, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.3317 high to $0.3065 low is also near the $0.3125 level.
On the upside, the main resistance is near the $0.3180 level. More importantly, there is a key resistance forming near $0.3180 and a bearish trend line on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The 100 hourly SMA is also near the $0.3180 level to act as a resistance. Furthermore, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.3317 high to $0.3065 low is at $0.3191.
Therefore, the price is likely to face a lot of resistance near the $0.3180 and $0.3200 levels. A successful close above $0.3200 is needed for a fresh increase above $0.3220 in the near term.
