Ripple has resumed a downward move as a result of its recent rejection at the $0.285 high. Today, the coin is approaching the previous low at $0.27.
However, since January 12, Ripple has been stuck below the $0.31 resistance where buyers tried unsuccessfully to break the overhead resistance. After its decline from the recent high, the coin plunged to $0.26 low.
The bulls bought the dips at the recent low as price corrected upward. Unfortunately, the upward correction was rejected at the $0.285 high. This implies a further downward movement of the coin is likely. On the downside, if XRP falls and breaks below the $0.26 support, the market will sink to a low above $0.16. Meanwhile, the altcoin has continued its fall.
The crypto’s price is breaking below the 21-day SMA. A break below the SMAs suggests a downward movement of the coin. Presently, XRP has fallen to level 43 of the Relative Strength Index period 14. It indicates that the coin is in the downtrend zone and below the centerline 50.
Key Resistance Zones: $0.80, $0.85, $0.90
Key Support Zones: $0.20, $0.15, $0.10
With the recent rejection at the $0.285 high, XRP is likely to further decline. On January 11 downtrend; a retraced candle body tested the 61.8 % Fibonacci retracement level. The retracement suggests that Ripple will fall to level 1.618 Fibonacci extension. That is the low of level $0.18.
