Ripple Price Under Pressure

The trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.2920 high to $0.2704 low. The 100 hourly SMA is also close to the $0.2840 level to act as a key hurdle.

XRP price must surpass the trend line resistance, 100 hourly SMA, and the $0.2840 level to move into a positive zone. In the stated case, the bulls might gain strength for a push towards $0.3000.

More Downsides in XRP?

If ripple struggles to clear above the $0.2800 and $0.2840 resistance levels, there could be more downsides. An initial support is near the $0.2730 region.

The next major support is near the $0.2700 level, below which the bulls are likely to struggle and the price might continue to move down towards the $0.2620 support.
