Price analysis of undulations
Yesterday we discussed a couple of important supports near the $ 0.5520 level for Ripple's price against the US dollar. The XRP / USD pair recently faced increased selling pressure and broke the $ 0.5520 support. The decline was such that the price even broke the $ 0.5500 support and the 100-hour simple moving average. Sellers have even managed to cancel the last main swing at $ 0.5320.
More importantly, there was a break below an important uptrend with support for $ 0.5420 on the hourly chart of the XRP / USD pair. The pair exceeded the $ 0.5200 level and traded close to the $ 0.5000 support. Low was formed at $ 0.5022 and the price is currently consolidating losses. An initial resistance is the fiber retracement level of 23.6% of the recent fall from the low of $ 0.6190 to $ 0.5022 below. However, it seems that the price can correct towards the $ 0.5500 level, which will probably act as a resistance. In addition, the 50% retracement level of the recently declining fibers from the low of $ 0.6190 to $ 0.5022 is $ 0.5600.
Looking at the chart, the ripple price remains on sale in rallies near the $ 0.5500 and $ 0.5600 levels. On the downside, if the price breaks the $ 0.5000 support, there could be more losses at $ 0.4800.
