Ripple Price Analysis
After a short term correction, ripple price extended losses below the $0.2950 support against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair broke the $0.2920 support level and declined heavily below $0.2900. It traded close to the $0.2800 level and settled well below the 100 hourly simple moving average. A new monthly low was formed at $0.2796 and the price recently corrected higher. It broke the $0.2860 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.3077 high to $0.2796 low.
The price even moved above the $0.2900 level, but it faced a strong resistance near the $0.2950 and $0.2960 resistance levels. More importantly, the price failed to clear the 100 hourly simple moving average, which is currently near $0.2938. Besides, the price failed near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.3077 high to $0.2796 low. Finally, there is also a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $0.2935 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.
Therefore, ripple must break the $0.2950 resistance, the trend line, and the 100 hourly SMA. A successful close above the $0.2950-0.2960 zone could push the price towards the next resistance at $0.3000. Once there is a daily close above $0.3000, the price may start a decent recovery in the near term. On the downside, an initial support is near the $0.2860 level. If the bulls struggle to keep the price above $0.2860, the price could revisit the $0.2810 and $0.2800 support levels.
Looking at the chart, ripple price is clearly trading in a tight range below key resistances near $0.2960 and $0.3000. The bulls need to gain traction above $0.3000 to push the price back in a positive zone. If not, there is a risk of a fresh decline towards the $0.2810 or $0.2750 level.
