Ripple Price Support
There was a nice upside reaction from the $0.1850 support in Ripple price yesterday against the US Dollar. The price traded above the $0.2000 resistance and even surpassed strong offers near $0.2100. A high was formed at $0.2168 from where the price started a downside correction. It moved below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.1850 low to $0.2168 high.
However, the downside was supported by the $0.2000 handle. The 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.1850 low to $0.2168 high along with the 100 hourly simple moving average prevented further declines. At present, it seems like there is an ascending channel forming with support at $0.2000 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The channel support is important near $0.2000 and the 100 hourly SMA.
The pair needs to stay above the channel support and the $0.1960 support to remain in the bullish zone. Should there be a break below $0.1960, the price could fall back towards the last swing low of $0.1850. On the upside, an immediate resistance is near $0.2100 followed by $0.2168. A break above $0.2168 might push the price towards $0.2300.
