XRP/USD Daily Chart
XRP bulls managed to push the price past $0.6750 before the bears mounted a stiff resistance. XRP presently consolidates at $0.55, awaiting further direction. A spike in buying pressure above the current price might cause a retest of the $0.6792 high. A sustained breakout above $0.6792 may cause the XRP/USD pair to rally to $0.75 marks. The RSI in the positive territory suggests an advantage to the bulls.
On the contrary, If the price turns down from current levels, the Altcoin may consolidate between $0.47 and $0.67 for a few days. A break below $0.47 may cause a retest of the ascending trendline support at around $0.44. A sustained break below the ascending trendline support may pull the price down to the next support at $0.3890.

On the 4-hour chart, XRP slid at $0.6657 to lows of $0.4929 before the bulls stepped in.
