Ripple (XRP) is vulnerable to a drop below $0.20

Written by  May 15, 2020

Ripple failed to stay above the $0.2050 resistance and declined recently against the US Dollar. XRP is showing bearish signs and it could decline further below $0.1980 and $0.1960.

Ripple Price Could Decline Further

Recently, bitcoin topped near the $9,950 level and declined sharply. It prompted a bearish reaction in ripple from the $0.2066 high. It seems like XRP price failed to stay above the $0.2050 resistance and started a fresh decline.

There was a break below the $0.2040 and $0.2020 levels. The price declined below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $0.1848 low to $0.2066 high.

More importantly, there was a break below a key ascending channel with support near $0.2015 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. Ripple is now testing the $0.2030 support area and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

If there is a downside break below the 100 hourly SMA, the price could test the $0.1980 support. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $0.1848 low to $0.2066 high.

If there are more downsides, the price could continue to move down towards the $0.1920 support. Any further losses could open the doors for a larger decline towards the $0.1840 support area in the near term.

Chances of an Upside Break in XRP

On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $0.2050 level. There is also a connecting bearish trend line with resistance near $0.2050 on the same chart.

The next key resistance is near the $0.2095 and $0.2100 levels. Any further gains could lead the price towards the $0.2220 zone in the coming sessions.
