Ripple Price Support
There was a nice recovery from the $0.7800 swing low in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The price traded higher and broke the $0.8000 and $0.8400 resistance levels. The current move is encouraging since the price surpassed the $0.8500 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There was also a break above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last downside move from the $0.9105 high to $0.7815 swing low.
At the moment, the price is testing a major hurdle at $0.8750. The stated $0.8750 level acted as a resistance on many occasions and is currently preventing an upside break. Once buyers succeed in clearing $0.8750, the price could move further higher towards $0.9000. Above this last, the price may perhaps retest the last swing high of $0.9100. On the downside, there is a key connecting bullish trend line forming with support at $0.8650 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.
Looking at the chart, the pair remains well supported on the downside at $0.8600. Moreover, the 100 hourly simple moving average is near $0.8500 to prevent declines. Therefore, if the price corrects lower, buyers are likely to protect losses below $0.8500.
