Ripple price faces very little support on the way down

The nearest price target is the 100-SMA support level at $0.53. A breakdown from this point will quickly drive Ripple price to $0.356. On the other hand, bulls haven’t lost hope just yet as XRP holders will be able to receive an airdrop from the Flare Network platform on December 12.
The Spark airdrop is only for XRP holders which is increasing the demand for the digital asset and buying pressure. Bulls need to push Ripple price above the 50-SMA at $0.60 and turn it into a support level.
