The price of XRP is consolidating against the price of Bitcoin, even if it is recording gains against the USD. Right now, it must clear the resistance levels at $0.4400 and $0.4450 if it is to move higher near-term. Unfortunately, the chances of this happening are slim. A few days ago, Ripple bought a 10% stake of MoneyGram. They paid $30 million first and MoneyGram has the chance to request for another $20 million in the next two years. This led to a surge in the price of the token.

XRP was able to break the resistance at $0.45 and $0.46. The next target was $0.50 but before the cryptocurrency could cross that level the price fell significantly losing most of the gains acquired recently. This was after it touched the $0.4630 level. It fell sharply below the $0.4500 support reaching the $0.4400 support level and still could not recover until it fell below $0.4175. A strong descending trendline formed around the $0.4169 level and the price started to move higher against the USD. It managed to touch the $0.4300 level which also happens to be at the 100 level simple moving average.

The price of XRP was able to break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from $0.4630 to $0.4170. There is still a strong resistance at $0.4400 and it is crucial that XRP moves above this resistance if it is to retest the $0.46 level. The 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from $0.4630 to $0.4170 is around the $0.4400 level. The MACD is bullish just like the relative strength index
