Ripple Price Facing Hurdles
Recently, there was a decent recovery in ripple above the $0.2320 and $0.2350 resistance levels against the US Dollar. XRP price even spiked above the $0.2400 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
However, the price failed to gain strength and topped near the $0.2420 area. A high was formed near $0.2415 and the price started a downward move. It broke the $0.2380 and $0.2350 levels.
Furthermore, there was a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $0.2236 low to $0.2415 high. Ripple is now trading below the $0.2320 level and the 100 hourly SMA.
An immediate support is near the $0.2300 level. It coincides with the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $0.2236 low to $0.2415 high. If there is a downside break, the price could test the key $0.2240 support area.
On the upside, the bulls are facing a lot of barriers near $0.2380 and $0.2400. More importantly, this week’s followed key bearish trend line is protecting upsides with resistance near $0.2350 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.
Ripple Price
Therefore, a successful close above the $0.2400 resistance area is needed for ripple to start a strong rise. The next key hurdles are visible near $0.2500 and $0.2550.
Risk Of Larger Decline In XRP
If XRP continues to struggle near $0.2380 and $0.2400, it could decline heavily. The main support is near the $0.2240 level, below which the bears are likely to aim a drop below $0.2200.
In the mentioned case, ripple price may perhaps continue to move down below $0.2150 and it might test the $0.2120 support area in the near term.
