Ripple Price Daily Technical Analysis
Ripple price is under pressure for the second straight day and as of writing giving up 1.62% at $0.2716, but off the daily lows that hit earlier during the Asian session at the 50-day moving average. XRPUSD managed to rebound for the third time from 0.2650 region and bullish traders hope today for a credible close above the 50-day moving average.
If the selling pressure, push Ripple price below 0.2654, then more sellers might join the action for an attempt to the next support at 0.2533 the low from August 27.
On the upside, intraday resistance stands at 0.2768 the daily top. More selling pressure might emerge at 0.3040 the high from yesterday’s trading session. If the bulls break that hurdle, then the next target would be the high from August 18 at 0.3212.
