Ripple Price Trend

This week, we discussed about a major resistance near $0.7500 in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The price struggled to move above the $0.7450 and $0.7500 resistance levels. As a result, there was a downside reaction and the price declined below the $0.7200 support level. There was a sharp increase in selling pressure and the price even broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $0.6300 low to $0.7500 swing high.

More importantly, there was a break below this week’s ascending channel with support at $0.7200 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair settled below the $0.7000 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average, which is a bearish sign. It seems like the price may decline further if sellers break the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $0.6300 low to $0.7500 swing high at $0.6580. The next support on the downside is near the last swing low at $0.6300.
