Ripple Price Upside Hurdle
It was an eventful week for Ripple price as it fell below the $0.1600 support against the US Dollar. The downside move was such that the price almost tested the $0.1500 level. A low was formed at $0.1502 from where a recovery was initiated. The price moved above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.2251 high to $0.1502 low. However, the price seems to be struggling to clear the $0.1850 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
There was also a failed attempt to break the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.2251 high to $0.1502 low. The price is currently trading below $0.1900 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. On the upside, there is a major bearish trend line forming with current resistance at $0.1850 on the hourly chart of XRP/USD. A proper close above the trend line resistance, $0.1900 and the 100 hourly SMA is needed for further gains.
Once we have a close above $0.1900, the price could easily surpass the $0.2000 level. The next major hurdle for buyers sits near $0.2045. On the downside, an initial support is at $0.1750, followed by $0.1700.
