Ripple Price Support
Yesterday, Ripple price was seen making an attempt to settle above the $0.2250-0.2230 resistance against the US Dollar. The price failed to gain momentum and declined below $0.2200. There was a break below a major bullish trend line with support at $0.2150 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. The pair also moved below the $0.2100 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It opened the doors for more declines and the price moved towards an important support at $0.2060.
The stated $0.2060 support is currently holding losses. On the upside, an initial resistance is around $0.2159. It is the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.2250 high to $0.2060 low. However, the most important hurdle is around this week’s highlighted descending channel with current resistance at $0.2200. It won’t be easy for buyers to push the price above $0.2200 and the channel resistance. On the downside, a break below $0.2060 could take the price towards $0.2000.
The $0.2000 support is key and must hold to avoid a major change in the trend. We can witness more ranging moves in the near term before the price attempts a recovery towards $0.2200.
