XRP Price

Immediate resistance is near the $0.5185 level. The first key resistance is near $0.5200. A close above the $0.5200 resistance zone could send the price higher. The next key resistance is near $0.5220. If the bulls remain in action above the $0.5220 resistance level, there could be a rally toward the $0.5350 resistance. Any more gains might send the price toward the $0.550 resistance.

Another Decline?

If XRP fails to clear the $0.520 resistance zone, it could start another decline. Initial support on the downside is near the $0.5145 level. The next major support is at $0.5120.

If there is a downside break and a close below the $0.5120 level, the price might accelerate lower. In the stated case, the price could even drop below the $0.5050 support zone or the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $0.4980 swing low to the $0.5195 high.
