XRP Price Faces Resistance

XRP price extended losses below the $0.480 level like Bitcoin and Ethereum. The price even spiked below $0.4650 and tested the $0.4620 zone. A low was formed at $0.4619 and the price recently started a recovery wave.

There was an upward move above the $0.4700 and $0.4720 resistance levels. The price even surpassed the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward wave from the $0.4885 swing high to the $0.4620 low. However, the bears seem to be active near the $0.4780 zone.

They are protecting the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward wave from the $0.4885 swing high to the $0.4620 low. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance at $0.4770 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.

It is now trading below $0.4800 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average. On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the $0.4770 level. The first major resistance is near the $0.4800 level.

A clear move above the $0.4800 resistance might send the price toward the $0.4885 resistance. The next major resistance is near the $0.5050 level. A close above the $0.5050 resistance zone could send the price higher. The next key resistance is near $0.5250. Any more gains might send the price toward the $0.5500 resistance.

Another Decline?

If XRP fails to clear the $0.4800 resistance zone, it could start another decline. Initial support on the downside is near the $0.4685 level.

The next major support is at $0.4620. If there is a downside break and a close below the $0.4620 level, the price might gain bearish momentum. In the stated case, the price could even trade below the $0.450 support in the near term.
