Ripple Price Analysis

During the past two sessions, Ripple price climbed higher from the $0.4420 support area against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair traded above the $0.4500 and $0.4550 resistance levels to move into a positive zone. It is currently trading well above the $0.4500 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The recent upside move was such that the price broke the last swing high at $0.4710 to trade to a new weekly high at $0.4740.

More importantly, there was a break above a major triangle resistance at $0.4640 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair is clearly gaining momentum above $0.4650 and it could continue to move higher. If there is a downside correction, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $0.4242 low to $0.4744 high may act as a support. However, the main support on the downside is near the $0.4500 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $0.4242 low to $0.4744 high.
