Ripple Price Holding Gains

Yesterday, we discussed the chances of more upsides in ripple above the $0.2400 resistance. XRP price did gain traction above the $0.2420 resistance and it remained well above the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The upward move was such that the price broke the $0.2450 level and it tested the $0.2500 resistance (as discussed in yesterday’s analysis). Recently, there was a downside correction below the $0.2450 and $0.2420 levels.

The price even traded below the $0.2400 level, but it is finding strong bids near the $0.2380 support. The recent low was formed near $0.2383 and the price is currently consolidating gains. An initial resistance is near the $0.2410 level.

The 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.2500 high to $0.2383 low is also near $0.2410. The first major resistance on the upside is near the $0.2440 level since it coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.2500 high to $0.2383 low.

It seems like there is a key connecting bullish trend line forming with support near $0.2380 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. If the pair stays above the trend line, it could start a fresh increase above $0.2440 and $0.2450.

The main hurdle is now near the $0.2500 resistance zone. A successful break above the $0.2500 level may perhaps lead the price towards the $0.2560 and $0.2580 levels in the near term.

Downside Break in XRP

The trend line support holds the key for ripple near $0.2380. If there is a downside break below $0.2380, the price may perhaps extend its decline towards the $0.2320 level.

The main support is near the $0.2300 level (the last breakout zone), below which the bears are likely to aim a larger correction wave towards the $0.2200 level.
