Ripple Price Analysis
After trading as low as $0.2850, ripple started a minor upside correction against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair traded above the $0.2860 and $0.2880 resistance levels. It also moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.2987 high to $0.2849 low. However, there was a strong rejection near the $0.2910 and $0.2920 resistance levels. The price even failed to test the $0.2930 pivot level and later traded in a tight range. More importantly, it slowly traded lower and settled below $0.2900 plus the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.2987 high to $0.2849 low is also near $0.2918. Therefore, the price is likely to struggle near the $0.2900 and $0.2920 resistance levels. On the downside, an initial support is at $0.2850, below which there is a risk of a drop to $0.2800.
