Yesterday, Ripple price made an attempt to break the $0.5500 resistance against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair failed to move past $0.5500 and $0.5505, which resulted in a downside move. The price declined and broke a few important supports including $0.5400 to move into a bearish zone. It even traded below the $0.5350 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted important ascending channel was breached with support at $0.5350 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair cleared the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.5094 low to $0.5611 high to accelerate declines. At the moment, the price is trading below the $0.5300 level and the 100 hourly SMA with bearish signs. It may continue to decline towards the $0.5150 level. An intermediate support is around the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.5094 low to $0.5611 high.
