XRP/USD: Daily chart  

Ripple’s daily chart shows that the price has failed to find acceptance above the powerful horizontal trendline resistance (orange) at $0.60.

This has prompted the bulls to enter a phase of consolidation, as they gather strength once again, in order to yield a sustained break above the latter.

If the upside break materializes, the next fierce barrier awaits around $0.6425, which is a static resistance, represented by a horizontal trendline (yellow).

A daily closing above that level is needed to resume the uptrend towards $0.80.

The 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) trades listless but comfortable above the midline, suggesting that there remains an additional room for the spot to rise.

A bull crossover, charted by the 21-daily moving average (DMA) having pierced through the 50-DMA from below, further adds credence to the bullish potential.

On the flip side, Immediate support awaits at the bullish 21-DMA of $0.5155, below which the 50-DMA at $0.5031 could be challenged.

Further south, the strong psychological support at $0.50 could help limit the declines in the XRP/USD pair.
