The price of Ripple (XRP) is still in a downward correction after the recent drop to a low of $0.30 on July 1. In the latest price action, the bulls failed to break the high at $0.38 or the 50-day line SMA.
The bears sold off in the recent rally, hence the drop to the low of $0.30. In the last five days, XRP has regained bullish momentum as the cryptocurrency holds above the $0.30 low.
Today, XRP has risen to the high of $0.32, but the upside is encountering rejection at the recent high. The upward movement is limited by the 21-day line SMA. A break above the 21-day line SMA will accelerate the upward movement. The coin will rally to the high at $0.38 or above the 50-day line SMA. The bullish momentum will extend to the high of $0.46. On the other hand, if the bulls fail to break the 21-day line SMA, XRP will be forced to trade in a narrow range between $0.30 and $0.32.
Ripple has fallen to the 40 level of the Relative Strength Index for the 14 period. XRP is in the downtrend zone and is capable of further decline. The price is below the 30% area of the daily stochastic. The cryptocurrency is in a bearish momentum.

Major Resistance Levels - $0.80 and $1.00

Ripple is vulnerable to price declines as it faces rejection at the 21-day line SMA. Selling pressure will continue if the price falls below the $0.30 support.
