Immediate resistance is near the $0.5480 level. The first key resistance is near $0.570. A close above the $0.570 resistance zone could spark a strong increase. The next key resistance is near $0.5850. If the bulls remain in action above the $0.5850 resistance level, there could be a rally toward the $0.620 resistance. Any more gains might send the price toward the $0.680 resistance.

More Losses?

If XRP fails to clear the $0.5480 resistance zone, it could start another decline. Initial support on the downside is near the $0.5320 level and the trend line.

The next major support is at $0.5240 and the 100 simple moving average (4 hours). If there is a downside break and a close below the $0.5240 level, the price might accelerate lower. In the stated case, the price could retest the $0.50 support zone.
