The bulls were able to push the price above the $0.1780 resistance, but they struggled to clear the $0.1800 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. A swing high was formed near $0.1798 before the pair started correcting lower.

If ripple price struggles to clear the $0.1780 and $0.1800 resistance levels, there is a risk of another decline. An initial support is near the $0.1740 level.
