Analyzing the price of the Ripple

There was no recovery above $ 1.00 yesterday in the price of the XRP against the US dollar. The extended price decreased and moved below a main support area close to $ 0.9400. The decline was substantial as the price closed below the support of $ 0.9200 as well. There was even a close below the 100-hour simple moving average and the price was negotiated as low as $ 0.8928.

During the downward movement, the short-term bullish trend line with support at $ 0.9400 was broken on the hourly chart of the XRP / USD pair yesterday. He opened the doors to get more profits and the price is now at risk of falling further below $ 0.8900. An initial bullish resistance is around the 23.6% retracement level of Fibonacci in the last decline, from the low of $ 0.9802 to the low of $ 0.8928. There are many upside obstacles near the $ 0.9400 level and the 100-hour SMA. In addition, the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the minimum of $ 0.9802 to the minimum of $ 0.8928 is $ 0.9356.

On the downside, the recent low of $ 0.8928 is short-term support. A break below the mentioned level could push the price towards $ 0.8800. Any additional loss below $ 0.8800 could be very bearish for XRP in the short term.
