Ripple Price Analysis

Yesterday, there was a strong decline in Ethereum, bitcoin and ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair declined sharply below the $0.2800 and $0.2500 support levels. Finally, the price settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average and a swing low was formed at $0.2336. Recently, the price started a decent recovery and climbed above the $0.2400 and $0.2500 levels.

Moreover, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $0.3088 swing high to $0.2336 swing low. However, the price is facing a strong resistance near the $0.2650 and $0.2700 levels. More importantly, the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $0.3088 swing high to $0.2336 swing low is acting as a hurdle.

At the moment, there is a major contracting triangle pattern is forming with resistance near $0.2670 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. If there is an upside break above the $0.2670 and $0.2700 resistances, ripple price could continue to recover. The next key resistance is near the $0.2850 level and the 100 hourly SMA. If there are more gains, the price could test the $0.3000 resistance area.

Conversely, if there is a bearish break below the $0.2550 and $0.2500 support levels, the price could resume its decline. An immediate support below $0.2500 is near $0.2400. If the price fails to stay above $0.2400 or $0.2350, there could be a sharp drop towards the $0.2200 support area.

Looking at the chart, ripple price is facing an uphill task near the $0.2650 and $0.2700 levels. However, the current price action suggests that the price might climb higher towards $0.2800 and $0.2850. If not, there is a risk of another strong decline below the $0.2500 support area in the near term.
