Ripple price is slowly recovering against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD is positioned nicely for more upsides towards the $0.5200 or $0.5280 levels.

Ripple Price Analysis

There was a major downside correction from the $0.5600 swing high in ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair declined below the $0.5400 and $0.5200 support levels. There was even a close below the $0.5180 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Later, the price declined below the $0.5000 support and tested the $0.4860 support level.

The price started consolidating losses and it later managed to recover above $0.4950 and $0.5000. There was also a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance at $0.5050 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair tested the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.5615 high to $0.4863 low. However, the upside move is facing sellers near the $0.5050 level and the 100 hourly SMA. If there is an upside break above $0.5050, the price could climb towards the $0.5200 resistance. The next hurdle is the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.5615 high to $0.4863 low at $0.5239.
