XRP/USD is trading at $0.4775 to press time, consolidating losses incurred late on Sunday. The third largest coin by market value lost nearly 3% on a daily basis; however, it is unchanged since the start of the day. XRP’s market value is registered at $18.7B, with the average daily trading volume of $217M.

From the technical point of view, the local support is created by $0.4500. If it is cleared, the sell-off may be extended to $0.4240, which is the lowest level since June 29. The coin is glued to a bunch of hourly moving averages, which may imply some rangebound price action on the intraday level. A morning star candlestick pattern that appears on the hourly chat may signal that more upside is in store.

Local resistance is seen at 0.4900; this is where new selling orders may appear and push the coin back in the range. Once it is cleared, $0.5000 will come into focus.
