Ripple Price Analysis

In the past three sessions, there was a strong upward move in bitcoin above $10,000 and $10,200 against the US Dollar. It helped many altcoins such as Ethereum, ETC, BNB and BCH. Moreover, there were positive signs emerged for ripple and it climbed above the $0.2580 resistance level. XRP price even broke the $0.2600 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

During the rise, yesterdays highlighted major bearish trend line was breached with resistance near $0.2565 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair even broke the $0.2620 resistance area. However, the $0.2650 level acted as a strong resistance (as discussed in yesterdays analysis). A swing high was formed near $0.2652 and the price is currently correcting gains.

It broke the $0.2620 level plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.2511 low to $0.2652 high. On the downside, there is a decent support forming near the $0.2580 level. Additionally, there is a connecting bullish trend line forming with support near $0.2580 on the same chart. Finally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.2511 low to $0.2652 high is also near the $0.2580 level.

Therefore, the $0.2580 level might act as a strong support in the near term. If the price fails to stay above the $0.2580 support, it could test $0.2550 and the 100 hourly SMA. Any further downsides might push the price back towards $0.2500. On the upside, the bulls need to gain momentum above the $0.2620 and $0.2650 resistance levels to push the price further higher.

Looking at the chart, ripple price is correcting gains after testing the key $0.2650 resistance area. However, if the $0.2580 support holds the current decline, the price could bounce back. Conversely, the price is likely to extend its decline back towards $0.2500.
