Ripple Price Resistance
After a test of the $0.2200 level, there was a downside reaction in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The price traded below the $0.2100 support and moved below the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last leg up from the $0.1800 low to $0.2200 high. However, the downside move was protected by the all-important $0.1980-0.1960 support area.
Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg up from the $0.1800 low to $0.2200 high also acted as a support. At present, the price is trading in a familiar range above the $0.1950 support area and flirting with the 100 hourly simple moving average. On the upside, there is a bearish trend line forming with resistance at $0.1990 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. A break above the trend line resistance is required for a move towards $0.2050.
However, if buyers remain in control, there can be an upside extension towards the $0.2100 level as well. On the downside, the $0.1980 and $0.1960 levels are important supports. Furthermore, the $0.1950 level is a crucial pivot and buy zone. As long as the price is above $0.1960, there can be an upside break soon.
