  • The price is facing many hurdles and it is now well below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
  • There was a break below a crucial bullish trend line with support near $ 0.2440 on the 4-hours chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair is likely to decline sharply if there is a close below $ 0.2300 and $ 0.2280.

Ripple Price is Testing Important Support

This week, we saw a fresh decline in bitcoin, Ethereum, and ripple. XRP price failed to stay above the $ 0.2500 and $ 0.2450 support levels, and moved into a bearish zone.

There was a sharp decline after there was a close below the $ 0.2440 support and 100 simple moving average (4-hours). More importantly, there was a break below a crucial bullish trend line with support near $ 0.2440 on the 4-hours chart of the XRP/USD pair.

The pair even traded below the $ 0.2320 support and traded as low as $ 0.2293. It is currently consolidating losses above a significant support zone near $ 0.2290-$ 0.2300.

On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $ 0.2360 level or the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $ 0.2590 swing high to $ 0.2293 low. The main resistance is near the $ 0.2440 level (the recent breakdown zone) and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $ 0.2590 swing high to $ 0.2293 low is also near the $ 0.2440 level. A successful close above the $ 0.2440 resistance and the 100 SMA is must for a decent upward move in the near term.

More Losses in XRP?

If ripple fails to recover above the $ 0.2400 and $ 0.2440 resistance levels, there is a risk of more losses. The main breakdown support is forming near the $ 0.2290-$ 0.2300 zone.

A downside break and close below the $ 0.2290-$ 0.2300 zone could start a sharp decline. The next main support is near the $ 0.2200 level, below which the price could accelerate lower towards $ 0.2120.
