Ripple Price Rally
There was a sharp upside move in Ripple price above the $0.2150 level against the US Dollar. The upside move was strong as the price was able to break the $0.2400 and $0.2500 resistance levels. It traded close to the $0.2700 level before it faced solid offers. A high was formed near $0.2660 and later the price started a downside correction. The dip was massive and the price trimmed most of its gains to trade back towards $0.2100.
The mentioned $0.2100 support area acted as a support along with the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price is now moving back higher and already broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 0.2660 high to $0.2065 low.

The same trend line is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 0.2660 high to $0.2065 low.
Therefore, the $0.2350 level is a decent resistance for the next move. On the downside, an initial support is near $0.2180. However, the most important support is close to the $0.2120 level and the 100 hourly SMA.
