• XRP/USD touched $0.3329, but failed to hold ground. 
  • XRP has returned to the previous range. 

Ripple’s XRP shot to $0.3329 during Asian hours, however the upside proved to be unsustainable as the coin retraced to $0.3266 by the time of writing. Despite the downside correction, the coin is still nearly 1.5% higher since the beginning for the day. XRP takes the third place int he global cryptocurrency market rating with the current market value of $13.6 billion. 

It is worth noting that the strong price growth was accompanied by an increase of trading volumes towards $4.3 billion, while an average daily trading volume for the coin does not exceed $1.1 billion.

Ripple’s technical picture 

On the intraday charts, the initial support for XRP/USD comes at $0.3350. It is created by SMA100 (30-min) and SMA50 (1-hour). Once it is cleared, the downside may be extended towards 61.8% Fibo retracement at $0.3220. This area is likely to slow down the sell-off. However, a sustainable move lower will expose psychological  $0.3200 and the Sunday’s low $0.3175. 

On the upside, the initial resistance is created by a confluence of SMA100 (1-hour) and SMA50 (4-hour) at $0.3280. It is followed by a psychological $0.3300 and the recent high of $0.3329.
