Ripple Price Analysis

There were 2-3 attempts to surpass the $0.4700 and $0.4750 resistances by Ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair failed to gain momentum above $0.4700 and started a downside move. The price declined and broke the $0.4600 support level. There was even a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $0.4235 low to $0.4750 swing high.

More importantly, there was a break below an ascending triangle pattern with support at $0.4630 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The price spiked towards the $0.4400 support and tested the 100 hourly simple moving average. Besides, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $0.4235 low to $0.4750 swing high acted as a support. The price is currently trading above the $0.4450 level and the 100 hourly SMA. However, the price remains at a risk of more losses and it could test the $0.4400 support in the near term. Below $0.4400, the next key support is at $0.4350.
