Looking via the 60-minute chart view, a near-term ascending trend line can be seen. This has been running from 4th November. Should XRP/USD continue south and meet this trend line, it is seen around $0.5000. A failure to hold could see a fast move down to $0.4600 area, where the next area of demand is observed.
