Ripple Price Support

There were mostly ranging moves in Ripple price above the $0.1950 support against the US Dollar. Buyers failed and there was also no upside break since buyers struggled to place the price above the $0.2050 resistance. There was a correction wave initiated from the $0.2168 swing high and the price declined back below $0.2100. However, the downside move was protected by the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg up from the $0.1845 low to $0.2168 high.

Moreover, the 100 hourly simple moving average is near $0.2020 and holding the current downside wave. Below $0.2020, there is a crucial support area near $0.1960-50. The mentioned $0.1950 acted as a strong buy zone on many occasions and would continue to hold downsides in the short term. At the moment, a bearish trend line forming with resistance at $0.2030 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair is preventing gains.
