Ripple Price Trend
There were decent gains in Ripple price this week above $0.2000 against the US Dollar. The price is currently placed well in the bullish zone and looks set to break the $0.2100 level sooner or later. It corrected nicely from the $0.1900 swing low and also moved above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last leg down from the $0.2240 high to $0.1898 low.
However, the price seems to be finding sellers near the $0.2080 and $0.2100 levels. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg down from the $0.2240 high to $0.1898 low is preventing further upsides. At present, the price is above the 100 hourly simple moving average and $0.2000. However, it has to move above the $0.2100 level for further gains. Moreover, there is a contracting triangle forming with support at $0.2040 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.
A break above the contracting triangle resistance at $0.2100 would open the doors for more gains. The next stop for buyers could be near $0.2200. On the downside, the $0.2040 level is a major support area. Below $0.2040, the next major support is near the $0.2000 handle.
