If you look at coinmarketcap Ripple was up 30% while bitcoin was up only 7 % at this moment. Ripple is still and will always be a very strong coin to invest in. I know many hardcore crypto supporters argue over the fact that ripple is a bankerscoin. But my advise to every new investor is to have at least ripple in your portfolio along with one or more other coins with a top 10 market cap. You actually dont need more since most coins grow and decline together (except some have a higher rate of recovery etc like ripple in this case)
We will soon see Ripple be at 3 dllar again and who knows where it will head to after that, The moon? :)
Levels to watch, 1. 40 dollar may inflict a bounce up again towards 1.74 and 2$
1.14 is the 61.8 fib level, in the event of a retracement this could be the lowest bounce level up, trade manually or set buy limit orders.
Good trading and stay relaxed, DONT Panic.
