Ripple technical outlook
Earlier in the week, XRP/USD rose to its highest level in six months at $0.3280. However, the price met a stiff resistance for the second time this month and made a sharp U-turn. With this move, a double-top seems to have formed on the daily chart, which is seen as a bearish reversal sign. With a break below $0.2700 (daily low, August 11 low, Fibonacci 38.2% retracement of June-August rally), Ripple could extend its losses toward $0.2530 (Fibonacci 50% retracement) and $0.2460 (50-day SMA).
On the other hand, resistances are located at $0.2900 (20-day SMA, Fibonacci 23.6% retracement), $0.3000 (psychological level) and $0.3280.
