Charted: Ripple (XRP) Approaching Make-or-Breaks Levels, $0.47 Is The Key

Ripple is struggling to settle above $0.5000 and slowly declining against the US Dollar. XRP price must stay above $0.4800 and $0.4750 to avoid a major downside break.

  • Ripple formed a swing high near $0.5940 and declined below $0.5200 against the US dollar.
  • The price is now trading below the $0.5000 zone and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
  • There is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $0.5370 on the 4-hours chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair is slowly moving towards a significant support at $0.4800 and $0.4750.

Ripple’s XRP Price is Showing Bearish Signs

In the past few days, ripple’s XRP price made many attempts to gain momentum above $0.6000, but it failed. There were many failures noted near $0.6000 and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

The price is currently declining and trading well below the $0.5200 pivot level. The last swing high was formed near $0.5939 before there was a drop below $0.5000. A low is formed near $0.4800 and the price is currently consolidating losses.

Recently, there was a fresh increase in bitcoin and Ethereum, but upsides were capped in XRP above $0.5200. There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $0.5939 high to $0.4802 swing low.

On the upside, the first major resistance is near the $0.5200 level. The next major resistance is near the $0.5380 level. There is also a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $0.5370 on the 4-hours chart of the XRP/USD pair.

The trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $0.5939 high to $0.4802 swing low. A close above $0.5200 and $0.5400 could open the doors for a strong increase in the coming days. The next major resistance is still near the $0.6000 level.

Downside Break in XRP?

If ripple fails to correct above $0.5200, it could continue to move down. The first major support is near the $0.4800 and $0.4750 levels.

A downside break below the $0.4750 level could spark a major decline below the $0.4500 support. In the stated case, the price could dive towards the $0.4200 support.
