Ripple Price Analysis

After struggling to surpass the $0.2320 resistance, ripple price started a fresh decline against the US Dollar. XRP price broke a couple of important supports near $0.2260 to move into a short term bearish zone.

Moreover, there was a close below the $0.2240 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It opened the doors for more losses below the $0.2220 and $0.2200 levels.

Finally, the price traded as low as $0.2186 and it is currently correcting higher. It is trading near 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $0.2325 high to $0.2186 low.

On the upside, ripple is facing a lot of hurdles, starting with the $0.2240 level (the previous support and now resistance). Additionally, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $0.2240 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.

Above the trend line, the 100 hourly SMA is near the $0.2260 resistance area. More importantly, the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $0.2325 high to $0.2186 low is near the $0.2260 level.

Therefore, the price is likely to face a strong resistance near the $0.2240 and $0.2260 levels. If the bulls manage to pierce the $0.2260 level, the price is likely to accelerate higher towards the $0.2320 resistance area.

On the other hand, sellers are likely to remain active near $0.2240 and $0.2260. In the mentioned case, the price may perhaps continue to move down below $0.2200 and $0.2180.
