Ripple Price Decline
Yesterday, we discussed that Ripple price could drop towards the $ 0.2600 level against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair failed to move past the $ 0.2900 and $ 0.3000 resistance area, which resulted in a bearish wave. The price dropped and not only broke the $ 0.2600 support, but it also cleared the $ 0.2500 support. A new monthly low was formed at $ 0.2471 and the price is currently correcting higher.
It is testing the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $ 0.3088 high to $ 0.2471 low. Above $ 0.2650, the price may well trade towards the $ 0.2770 and $ 0.2800 resistance levels. Moreover, yesterday’s highlighted important bearish trend line is intact with resistance near the $ 0.2950 level on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. An intermediate hurdle is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $ 0.3088 high to $ 0.2471 low. Therefore, there are many resistances aligned between the $ 0.2700 and $ 0.2850 levels. Any recoveries towards the $ 0.2800 level are likely to face sellers.
Looking at the chart, ripple price is clearly in a downtrend below $ 0.3000. On the downside, the $ 0.2500 level is a decent support, below which, the price is likely to test the $ 0.2400 level in the near term.
