SUMMARY: Ripple price was unable to gain bullish momentum despite the BTC price surge. It is very essential for XRP to break through $0.2950 and $0.3000 resistance levels in the short term to avoid the risk of a crash.
After crashing below to test the $0.2900 support level recently, buyers were able to push the price of XRP upwards above the $0.2950 resistance level. XRP even tested the $0.3000 resistance level where a lot of sellers emerged and the price started to correct downwards. The selling pressure moved Ripple price below the 100 hourly SMA and $0.2980 level. XRP even declined below the $0.2950 support level which has now turned into a strong resistance level.
Ripple price recorded a weekly low at around $0.2900 and is currently trading at high risk of a crash below this range. A lot of sellers are placed around $0.2950 due to which it is very difficult for XRP to break through this level. Also above this level, there is strong resistance around $0.2980 and $0.3000 levels as well. Therefore, it is very essential for XRP to break above these resistance levels in the short term to avoid further declining.
