  • Ethereum is also down more than 6% and it is now trading near the $130 support.

Ripple price is declining heavily against the US Dollar and bitcoin. XRP price remains at a risk of another landslide below the $0.2000 support area.

Ripple Price Analysis

In the past few hours, there was a strong bearish wave in ripple, Ethereum, EOS, and a few other altcoins against the US Dollar. XRP price broke the main $0.2150 and $0.2120 support levels to move further into a bearish zone.

Furthermore, there was a close below $0.2100 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price even spiked below the $0.2050 support.

More importantly, there was a break below a couple of bearish continuation patterns with support near $0.2120 and $0.2050 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair traded close to the $0.2000 support area and the recent low is near $0.2018.

The current price action suggests very less chances of an upside correction above $0.2040 in the short term. The first key resistance is near the $0.2050 level. It is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $0.2185 high to $0.2018 low.

If ripple price corrects above the $0.2050 and $0.2060 levels, there are chances of further gains. The next major resistance is near the $0.2100 area. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $0.2185 high to $0.2018 low is also near $0.2108.

Conversely, the price could continue to slide below the $0.2020 and $0.2000 support levels. In the mentioned bearish case, the price is likely to slide below the $0.1980 support area. The next major support is near the $0.1960 level.
