Ripple Price Analysis
Recently, there was a sharp upward move in ripple price above the key $0.4500 resistance against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair gained strength and rallied above the $0.4800 and $0.4950 resistance levels. There was also a close above the $0.4500 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, the price rallied above the $0.5000 resistance and traded to a new monthly high at $0.5087.
However, ripple failed to stay in a positive zone and recently declined heavily below $0.5000. There was a break below a key bullish trend line with support near $0.4650 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. Moreover, there was a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.4216 low to $0.5087 high. The pair even broke the $0.4550 level, but the $0.4500 support and the 100 hourly SMA acted as strong supports.
Ripple traded close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.4216 low to $0.5087 high. It is now trading nicely above $0.4500 and the 100 hourly SMA. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $0.4620 and $0.4650 levels. If there is a successful break above the $0.4650 level, the price could start a fresh increase in the near term.
If not, there is a risk of another decline towards $0.4500 or even $0.4450. The key support is near the $0.4450 level, below which there is a risk of more losses.
