Ripple’s technical picture
The strong support for the coin is created by $0.4300 closely followed by $0.4270 (23.6% Fibo retracement). Once this area is cleared, the downside may gain traction with the next focus on psychological $0.4000 strengthened by Simple Moving Average (SMA)50, 4-hour and $0.3940 and followed by SMA100 4-hour at $0.3927.
On the upside, a sustainable move above the intraday high of $0.4600 will open up the way to $0.4715 - this is the highest level since May 16. A move above this handle may attract new buyers and push the price towards SMA100 weekly at $0.4967. An ultimate bullish aim is $0.50. XRP/USD has not touched it since November 2018.
