Looking at the 30-minute chart of XRP/USD, the pair traded as high as $0.4785 and later started a downside correction. It declined below the $0.4720 support and the 25 simple moving average (30-minute).
The price recently tested the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.4492 low to $0.4785 high, which acted as a support.
At the outset, there is a short term contracting triangle in place with support at $0.4610 on the 30-minute chart. If the pair declines further, the triangle support near $0.4610 is likely to act as a strong support for buyers.
Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.4492 low to $0.4785 high is placed near the $0.4603 level to prevent declines. Besides, the $0.4600 and $0.4590 levels are also important supports (the previous resistances).
Thus, if sellers push the price further lower, buyers are likely to appear near the $0.4610 or $0.4600 level. On the upside, the price must break the triangle resistance near $0.4680 to move back in a positive zone.
Above the triangle resistance, the next resistance is at $0.4700, above which the price will most likely move back towards the $0.4780 level. Should ripple price remain in an uptrend, it could test the $0.5000 level this week, which is a crucial hurdle for buyers.
