Ripple Price Analysis: XRP Slides Back to $0.65 After Failing to Break Out
XRP/USD – XRP Stalled By June Downward Sloping Trendline
- Key Support Levels: $0.6, $0.556, $0.5.
- Key Resistance Levels: $0.7, $0.781, $0.8282.
XRP looked promising last week after bouncing off the 2019 highs around $0.55 and heading higher. It went on to break $0.6 and pushed higher to meet the resistance at $0.7. The support there was further bolstered by the lower boundary of the falling wedge currently trading within.
Unfortunately, XRP was unable to close a daily candle above $0.7. The resistance here is provided by a combination of the upper boundary of the wedge, the 200-day MA, and the 20-day MA).
It has since rolled over from the wedge’s boundary and dropped to $0.66.

The RSI attempted to turn bullish after hitting the midline. Unfortunately, the bulls failed to establish any momentum, and the RSI has since dropped back beneath the midline, indicating the sellers are still unwilling to relinquish control.
