Ripple price is facing an uphill task against the US Dollar and bitcoin. XRP price must settle above $0.2250 to continue higher in the coming sessions.

Ripple Price Analysis

After a fresh decline, ripple found support above the $0.2180 level against the US Dollar. As a result, XRP price started an upside correction above the $0.2220 level.

However, the price struggled to gain bullish momentum above the $0.2260 area and the 100 hourly simple moving average. A high was formed near $0.2264 and the price declined below $0.2200.

It retested the $0.2180 support area and a new weekly low was formed near $0.2173. At the outset, ripple is correcting above the $0.2200 level. Moreover, it surpassed the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $0.2264 high to $0.2173 low.

An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $0.2220 level. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $0.2264 high to $0.2173 low is also near the $0.2220 level.

More importantly, yesterday’s key bearish trend line is intact with resistance near $0.2230 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. It seems like there are many resistances on the upside such as $0.2220, $0.2240, 100 SMA, and $0.2260.

Therefore, a clear break above the $0.2240 and $0.2260 levels is must to set the pace for more gains. The next major resistance above $0.2260 is near the $0.2320 level. An intermediate resistance is near the $0.2285 level.

On the downside, an initial support is near the $0.2200 level. The main support is near the $0.2180 level, below which there is a risk of an extended decline towards the $0.2100 and $0.2080 levels in the near term.
