Ripple Price Range
There was no recovery during the past few sessions above $0.5000 in Ripple price against the US Dollar. There were mostly bearish moves below the $0.5000 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. On the positive note, the price managed to hold a major support area near $0.4700. At the moment, the price is consolidating losses above the $0.4800 and $0.4700 support levels.
The recent low was formed at $0.4754 before the price started trading in a range. It moved slightly higher and tested the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.5540 high to $0.4754 low. However, the most important barrier for a recovery sits near the $0.5000 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.5540 high to $0.4754 low is at $0.5050. Therefore, the price may perhaps face a strong resistance near the $0.5000-0.5050 area.
On the downside, there is a short-term connecting bullish trend line forming with support at $0.4800 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair must stay above the $0.4700 and $0.4800 support levels to avoid further downsides in the near term.
