Ripple Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a nice upward move in ripple price above the $ 0.3150 and $ 0.3200 resistances against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair even tested the $ 0.3250 level, but it failed to hold gains. As a result, there was a sharp decline below the $ 0.3200 and $ 0.3150 levels. The price even spiked below the $ 0.3120 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. A swing low was formed at $ 0.3060 before the price corrected higher during BTC and Ethereum recovery.

The price moved above the $ 0.3080 level and tested the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $ 0.3245 high to $ 0.3061 low. However, the price seems to be facing a strong resistance near the $ 0.3105 level and the 100 hourly SMA. Besides, there is a key contracting triangle in place with resistance at $ 0.3110 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. If the pair manages to climb above the $ 0.3110 and $ 0.3120 resistance levels, there could be a decent recovery.

The next resistance is near the $ 0.3150 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $ 0.3245 high to $ 0.3061 low. On the other hand, if the price fails to move above the $ 0.3110 resistance, there may be a sharp dip. The $ 0.3060 support is crucial, below which the price might decline heavily. The next key supports are near $ 0.3040 and $ 0.3015.
