Ripple Price Support

After a major upside move, Ripple price found resistance near the $0.5245 level against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair formed a high at $0.5245 and started a downside correction. It declined below the $0.5000 support and moved into a short-term bearish zone. Moreover, there was a break below the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $0.4690 low to $0.5245 high.

Additionally, there was a break below a crucial bullish trend line with support at $0.4950 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair is now trading near a crucial support at $0.4750, which was a resistance earlier. More importantly, the 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned near the $0.4740 level to prevent declines. Therefore, as long as the price is above the $0.4750 support and the 100 hourly SMA, it is likely to bounce back in the near term. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.5245 high to $0.4750 low.
