Recently, there was a downside reaction below the $0.5300 level in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair traded towards the $0.5250 support area where buyers appeared. Moreover, the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.5105 low to $0.5615 high also acted as a support. XRP price bounced back from the $0.5250 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

It climbed back above the $0.5300 resistance with positive signs. During the upside, the price broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.5611 high to $0.5234 low. At the moment, the price is trading just below the $0.5500 resistance, which is preventing an upside break. Additionally, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.5611 high to $0.5234 low is also acting as a hurdle for buyers. Should there be a break above $0.5500, the price may perhaps move past $0.5600.
