A close above the $0.4920 resistance zone could send the price higher. The next key resistance is near $0.50. If there is a close above the $0.50 resistance level, there could be a steady increase toward the $0.5050 resistance. Any more gains might send the price toward the $0.5250 resistance.

More Losses?

If XRP fails to clear the $0.4850 resistance zone, it could continue to move down. Initial support on the downside is near the $0.4750 level.

The next major support is at $0.470. If there is a downside break and a close below the $0.470 level, the price might accelerate lower. In the stated case, the price could decline and retest the $0.4550 support in the near term.
