Ripple Price Prediction for Short Term
Looking at the charts, after trading as low as $0.2776 mark, Ripple price started an upward move against the USD. The XRPUSD pair traded higher and broke the $0.2800 and $0.2850 daily resistance levels. It also broke the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the last slide from the $0.3090 swing high to $0.2776 swing low. However, the upward move of Ripple was capped by the $0.2900- $0.2910 zone, which was a support earlier.
Moreover, there was no test of the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last slide from the $0.3090 highs to $0.2776 lows. More importantly, there is a major bearish trend line formed with resistance at $0.2860 on the hourly chart of the XRPUSD pair. Therefore, the price of Ripple must break the $0.33 barrier to move into a positive zone.
The next resistances above $0.2900 is positioned near the $0.3089 and $0.3330 level. On the downside, an initial support is at $0.2707, below which the price may revisit the $0.27 swing low. If there is no break below $0.2770, the price is likely to bounce back toward the bullish zone.
To sum up, Ripple price is facing a solid resistance near $0.3089 mark and it is well below the 100 hourly SMA. Thus, it won’t be easy for buyers to gain bullish momentum above $0.3089 in the near term.
