Ripple Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a downside reaction below the $0.5000 level in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair traded towards the $0.4600 level and formed a low at $0.4619. Later, there was an upside correction above the $0.4800 level. There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $0.5283 high to $0.4619 low. However, the upside move was protected by the $0.5000 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted key bearish trend line is active with resistance at $0.4940 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $0.5283 high to $0.4619 low is at $0.4950. The pair seems to be finding a strong selling interest near the trend lines, 100 SMA, and the $0.4950 level. A break above this could increase chances of a push above the $0.5000 resistance. If buyers succeed in clearing the $0.5000 resistance, the next target could be $0.5120.
