Ripple’s XRP had enjoyed a chunky bull run through much of the early part of Tuesday’s session. XRP/USD over the course of the day, had initially produced double digit gains, as much as 13% at the high.

It appeared the bulls were resuscitated as renewed life was kicked back into them. A fresh wave of buying pressure was seen, starting from the weekend. XRP/USD was below $0.4500, before starting to aggressively climb higher.

XRP/USD has breached a near-term supporting ascending trend line, this can be seen via the 60-minute chart view. The breakout was seen around $0.5378, where the support gave way to the bears. It appears to be some profit taking, given the short and sharp gains seen in this small time period. Support is immediately seen at $0.5245 on the 60-minute. Looking further south, should the bears continue to press low, eyes would be back on the psychological $0.5000 mark.
