The price is currently facing hurdles near the $0.1960 level. There is also a major declining channel forming with resistance near $0.1960 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.
The current price action suggests that ripple could rise above the channel resistance and $0.1980. However, there are many hurdles waiting on the upside near the $0.2000 and $0.2050 levels.
The main hurdle is near the $0.2050 level since it is close to the 100 hourly simple moving average. The 50% Fib retracement level of the main decline from the $0.2250 high to $0.1849 low is also near the $0.2049 level to stop the bulls.
To move into a positive zone, XRP price must climb above the $0.2000 resistance and then gains bullish momentum above the $0.2050 resistance zone.
