Ripple Price Range
Yesterday, we saw the start of range trading in Ripple price above the $0.1950 support against the US Dollar. The price remained in the mentioned, but also struggled to break the $0.2050 resistance. There were 2-3 attempts to settle above $0.2050 and $0.2060, but buyers failed. As a result, the price continued to trade in a range and held an important support at $0.1975-0.1960.
On the upside, there is a new bearish trend line forming with current resistance at $0.2040 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The trend line resistance is near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.2180 high to $0.1971 low. The 100 hourly simple moving average is also positioned near $0.2040 and the trend line resistance.
A close above $0.2040 would call for a test of the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.2180 high to $0.1971 low. A successful close above $0.2050 followed by $0.2100 is needed for buyers to push the price towards $0.2180 and $0.2200. On the downside, the $0.1975 range support holds a lot of importance followed by $0.1960.
