  • XRP/USD stays heavy after two-day downside.
  • 50-day EMA, 12-day-old support line restricts immediate downside.
  • 61.8% Fibonacci retracement adds to the support, bulls need a clear break beyond three-week-long resistance line.

XRP/USD flirts with the lowest since November 26, flashed the previous day, while trading near 0.4700 during early Wednesday. The crypto major refreshed the multi-day low the previous day while extending the downside break of 50% Fibonacci retracement of November’s north-run.

Although receding RSI condition suggests further weakness, a confluence of 50-day EMA and a falling trend line from November 29, around 0.4550/40, will challenge the XRP/USD sellers.

Additionally, 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of 0.4407 and November 22 low of 0.4035 extra downside filters.

Alternatively, 21-day EMA near 0.5300 will lure the short-term XRP/USD buyers. However, any further upside needs a clear break above the resistance line stretched from November 24, at 0.5410 now.

In a case where the XRP/USD bulls dominate past-0.5410, the 0.6000 threshold can offer an intermediate halt ahead of the monthly peak surrounding 0.6820.
