Ripple Price Decline
There were further losses in Ripple price from the $0.2400 swing high against the US Dollar. The price slowly and steadily moved down below the $0.2350 and $0.2300 support levels. It traded close to the $0.2200 level and formed a low at $0.2190. Later, there was an upside correction and the price moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.2600 high to $0.2190 low.
However, the upside move was capped by the $0.2350 resistance. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.2600 high to $0.2190 low also acted as a resistance. XRP declined once again and is currently trading near the $0.2200 support area.
