Ripple Price Trend

There was a nice support base formed near the $0.4850 level in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The price started an upside move and succeeded in breaking the $0.5000 resistance. It opened the doors for more gains, which resulted in an hourly close above $0.5100 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It even moved past the $0.5200 resistance and traded as high as $0.5550 recently.

A downside correction is underway from the $0.5550 high. During the last slide, the price already tested the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.4938 low to $0.5550 high. The decline was protected by the $0.5200 support and the price moved back in the positive zone. It is currently trading well above the $0.5300 level and it looks set for more gains. On the upside, a break above the $0.5550 high could clear the path for a push above the $0.5800 level in the near term.
