XRP Price Breaks Support

XRP price attempted a recovery wave above $0.4920 like Ethereum and Bitcoin. The price climbed above the $0.500 resistance zone, but the bears were active near $0.5050.

A high was formed at $0.5053 and the price is again moving lower. There was a move below the $0.4980 and $0.4950 support levels. The price traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recovery wave from the $0.4533 swing low to the $0.5053 high.

Besides, there was a break below a connecting bullish trend line with support at $0.4950 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair is now trading just above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recovery wave from the $0.4533 swing low to the $0.5053 high.

However, it is still trading below $0.50 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average. On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the $0.4920 level. The first key resistance is near $0.4950. The next major resistance is near the $0.500 level.

A close above the $0.500 resistance zone could send the price higher. The next key resistance is near $0.5050. If there is a close above the $0.5050 resistance level, there could be a steady increase toward the $0.5250 resistance. Any more gains might send the price toward the $0.5350 resistance.

More Losses?

If XRP fails to clear the $0.4950 resistance zone, it could continue to move down. Initial support on the downside is near the $0.480 level.

The next major support is at $0.4740. If there is a downside break and a close below the $0.4740 level, the price might accelerate lower. In the stated case, the price could decline and retest the $0.4550 support in the near term.
