Ripple (XRP) shows bearish case remains intact

Written by  May 14, 2020

Recently, bitcoin gained bullish momentum and climbed sharply above $9,500, sparking an upward move in ripple above $0.2019. XRP price broke the $0.1980 resistance zone to move into a short term positive zone.

The bulls pushed the price above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the main decline from the $0.2250 high to $0.1849 swing low. There was also a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $0.2000 on the four hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.

Chart trend line (Click image to enlarge) shows the last highs on 7th April up to today, it will take some serious price movement to push through.

Another Decline in XRP?

If ripple fails to continue above the $0.2050 and $0.2100 resistance levels, there might be another decline. An initial support is near the $0.2000 level.

The first major support is near the 100 hourly SMA at $0.1970, followed by the $0.1950 pivot level. In case the price declines below the $0.1950 support, the bears are likely to aim a test of the $0.1850 low.
