Ripple Price Range

We saw the start of a consolidation phase in Ripple price below the $0.2050 resistance against the US Dollar. The price remained in the range pattern and was not able to move above the $0.2050 resistance. Moreover, yesterday’s highlighted major channel with current support at $0.1965 is still active on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.

On the upside, the channel resistance is currently at $0.2040. The mentioned $0.2040 also coincides with the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last leg down from the $0.2165 high to $0.1966 low. A proper close above $0.2040 is required for buyers to gain momentum. The next major resistance is around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg down from the $0.2165 high to $0.1966 low at $0.2067. A close above $0.2067 would take the price back towards the last swing high at $0.2165.
