Ripple Price Analysis

After Ripple price failed near the $0.4750 resistance, there was a downside correction against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair declined and tested the $0.4400 support area. A low was formed at $0.4399 before the price started an upside move. It recovered above the $0.4500 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There was also a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.4748 high to $0.4399 low.

However, the price struggled to break the $0.4600 and $0.4615 resistance levels. Moreover, there was no close above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.4748 high to $0.4399 low. As a result, there was a downside reaction below the $0.4550 level. There was also a break below a contracting triangle pattern with support at $0.4550 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. At the outset, the pair seems to be struggling to break the triangle resistance trend line, which is currently at $0.4580.
