XRP/USD price chart

Ripple price is trading below the broken trendline support. However, it is strongly supported by the 61.8% Fib level of the last drop from $0.3463 to a low of $0.1766 at $0.26. In spite of the losses from the yearly highs at $0.3463 posted on February 15, XRP/USD is holding ground above the moving averages. A possible golden cross hints that bullish pressure is still present and could culminate in a push above the resistance at $0.28 and $0.30.
