Ripple (XRP) is at $0.465187 and has its major support at $0.4590 on the 24-hour trading chart. The XRP/USD pair is facing a key price hurdle near $0.47 and the bulls need to remain intact and sustain the pair above the 38.2 Fibonacci retracement level. 

If the coin does not maintain its position above $0.4639 on the daily chart, a downswing is imminent; which might pull the price further down below $0.42. 

XRP/USD closed the weekend in style after gaining over 0.33% by the end of 7th March. This was a continuation of Saturday’s bullish trendline that saw the coin attain a percentage gain of 1.79.

Ripple (XRP) was up for a greenish candlestick pattern before being rejected by key resistance at $0.4729. As a result, the coin reversed towards $0.4570. The good news is the bulls are holding on towards their target of $0.47. During press time, XRP is trading at $0.46.  The bears are injecting massive selling pressure to see the coin hit below the 12-hour support of $0.4590. 

XRP/USD price prediction

The coin has to remain intact around the pivot level of $0.4639 in the hours ahead. Bulls are aiming for $0.47 and the bears would do anything to create another price hurdle near the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level. 

The bulls are also rooting for support from the wider market to sustain the coin’s price above the past few price hurdles.

Conclusion

After a long 2021 Q1 battling a lawsuit with the Securities and Exchanges Commission, Ripple has some good news for the bulls.

The cryptocurrency firm announced that it would be testing a new private XRP ledger platform to help central banks build and deploy stablecoins (CBDCs). 

Institutional adoption of the Ripple blockchain is the key driving force for XRP’s price. And therefore, this makes a piece of good news for some bullish forecasts.
