Ripple Price Support
There was no major upside move in Ripple price above $0.2500 against the US Dollar. The price was seen struggling to gain traction above $0.2450 and $0.2500. However, it still remains in an uptrend above $0.2300. More importantly, this week’s highlighted ascending channel with current support near $0.2380 is active on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.
The pair is currently trading near a major support area at $0.2390. The channel support is at $0.2390 along with the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.2052 low to $0.2496 high is also around the same support. Therefore, the channel support near $0.2380-90 is very important and must hold losses.
Should there be a break below $0.2380, there is a chance of XRP testing the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.2052 low to $0.2496 high at $0.2275. Below this last, the $0.2050 support can be tested. On the upside, the channel resistance is near $0.2550. Before $0.2550, the $0.2500 level is also a major resistance area, which is preventing upsides towards $0.2600.
