XRP Price Holds Support

XRP price remained well-supported above the $0.500 zone and started a fresh increase like Bitcoin and Ethereum. The price was able to clear the $0.5120 and $0.5150 levels.

There was a clear move above the $0.5250 resistance and the price tested the $0.530 zone. A high was formed at $0.5300 and the price is now consolidating gains above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $0.5080 swing low to the $0.5300 high.

If there is a close above the $0.5450 resistance level, there could be a steady increase toward the $0.5560 resistance. Any more gains might send the price toward the $0.5650 resistance.

Another Decline?

If XRP fails to clear the $0.530 resistance zone, it could start another decline. Initial support on the downside is near the $0.5240 level and the trend line.

The next major support is at $0.5190 or the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $0.5080 swing low to the $0.5300 high. If there is a downside break and a close below the $0.5190 level, the price might accelerate lower. In the stated case, the price could decline and retest the $0.5120 support in the near term.
