Ripple Price Analysis

Yesterday, ripple price corrected above the $ 0.3000 resistance level against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair even traded above $ 0.3040a and 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the bulls struggled to gain momentum above the $ 0.3050 and $ 0.3060 resistance levels. As a result, the price formed a swing high at $ 0.3060 and recently declined below the $ 0.3000 support.

Moreover, there was a break below the $ 0.2950 support and a swing low was formed at $ 0.2917. The price is correcting higher above $ 0.2950 plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $ 0.3062 high to $ 0.2917 low. However, there is a strong resistance forming near the $ 0.2990 and $ 0.3000 levels. Additionally, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $ 0.2980 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.

Above the trend line, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $ 0.3062 high to $ 0.2917 low is at $ 0.2990. More importantly, the 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned near the $ 0.3000 area to act as a resistance.  Therefore, an upside break above the $ 0.3000 resistance might start a decent recovery in the near term. The next key resistances are near the $ 0.3050 and $ 0.3060 levels.

Conversely, if there is no upside break above $ 0.3000, the price could continue to slide. An immediate support is near the $ 0.2900 area. If there are more downsides, there is a risk of a break below the last swing low near $ 0.2895. In the mentioned case, the price is likely to drop towards the $ 0.2840 level.
