XRP Price Analysis
A bearish start to the week saw Ripple’s XRP fall from an early Monday morning high $0.51316 to a low $0.50337. Ripple’s XRP left the major support and resistance levels untested early in the day on Monday.
At the time of writing, XRP traded at $0.505510 with a daily trading volume of $8,155,309,593 USD. XRP is up 3.60% in the last 24 hours, with a market valuation of $22,952,192,576 and a circulating supply of 45,404,028,640 XRP.
The price is now trading below the $0.520 level. The support is near $ 0.500, below which the price could dive towards the weekly support at $0.480. On the upside, the price must gain momentum above $0.520 and then surpass $0.535.
Looking ahead, XRP would need to move through the 38.2% FIB of $0.5285 and the $0.5393 pivot level to support a run at the first major resistance level at $0.5985. However, support from the broader market would be needed for XRP to break out from $0.55 levels. Barring another extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $0.60 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of another breakout, the 23.6% FIB of $0.6274 resistance at $0.65 would likely come into play. The second major resistance level sits at $0.6840. Failure to move through the 38.2% FIB and the $0.5393 pivot would bring the first major support level at $0.4538 into play. In an extended sell-off, XRP Price should clear sub-$0.40 levels. The second major support level is at $0.3946.
