XRP/USD plummeted to the support at $0.3650 before correcting upwards within a rising channel as observed on the 4-hour chart. A correction past the trendline resistance which coincides with the 23.6% Fib level launched Ripple price into more gains breaking above the moving averages.

For the second time in June, Ripple has managed to trade above $0.4600 and even formed a new June high at $0.4680. However, the weakening bullish momentum is seeing the crypto slide towards $0.4400 support. Meanwhile, Ripple is trading at $0.4444 at press time. The trendline support will be key in aiding the stop of the correction. At the same time, a break above the channel resistance could propel Ripple towards the highs above $0.4800. Besides, the buyers have eyes on $0.5000 in the short-term.
