  • The pair could dip again if it stays below the $0.5050 resistance zone.

XRP Price Takes Hit

XRP price started a major decline like Ethereum and declined below the $0.50 support. The price even spiked below the $0.4650 support zone. A low was formed at $0.4533 and the price is now correcting losses.

There was a move above the $0.470 and $0.4750 resistance levels. The price climbed above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $0.5271 swing high to the $0.4533 low. There is also a connecting bullish trend line forming with support at $0.4950 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.

The pair is slowly moving above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $0.5271 swing high to the $0.4533 low. However, it is still trading below $0.5050 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average.

On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the $0.500 level. The first key resistance is near $0.5050. The next major resistance is near the $0.5120 level. A close above the $0.5120 resistance zone could send the price higher. The next key resistance is near $0.5250.

If there is a close above the $0.5250 resistance level, there could be a steady increase toward the $0.5320 resistance. Any more gains might send the price toward the $0.550 resistance.

Another Drop?

If XRP fails to clear the $0.5050 resistance zone, it could start another decline. Initial support on the downside is near the $0.4950 level and the trend line.

The next major support is at $0.4900. If there is a downside break and a close below the $0.490 level, the price might accelerate lower. In the stated case, the price could decline and retest the $0.4740 support in the near term.
