Ripple Price Resistance
There was a slow and steady upside move initiated from the $0.1900 low in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The price was successful in moving above the $0.2000 handle and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 0.2215 high to $0.1900 low. The upside move was positive as the price was able to move above the $0.2040 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Moreover, yesterday’s highlighted contracting triangle with current support at $0.2060 is still in place on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. As long as the pair is above $0.2060 and $0.2040, there is a chance of it gaining bids for the next leg. On the upside, the pair needs to settle above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 0.2215 high to $0.1900 low.
Once the pair is above $0.2120, it could easily move towards the last swing high of $0.2220. On the downside, the mentioned $0.2040 level is a major support near the 100 hourly SMA. Should there be a break below $0.2040, there can be a downside reaction toward the $0.2000 handle.
