Yesterday, we saw a sharp bullish reaction from the $0.3050 support area in ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair gained pace above $0.3120 and $0.3160 to move into a positive zone. It even spiked above the $0.3200 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the price struggled to hold gains above $0.3220 and later declined. The price also failed near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.3345 high to $0.3047 low. It dipped below the $0.3200 and $0.3180 levels to start a downside correction.
During the recent decline, the price moved below the $0.3150 level and the 100 hourly SMA. Besides, there was a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.3047 low to $0.3231 high. At the outset, there is a declining channel in place with support at $0.3130 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The current price action suggests that the price could dip below the $0.3130 and $0.3120 levels. Having said that, the price is likely to find bids near the $0.3100 for a fresh upward move.
Looking at the chart, ripple price is likely forming a replica of the recent declining channel with resistance at $0.3175. Therefore, there are high chances of a downside spike below $0.3120 before the price climbs higher once again.Technical Indicators
