Cryptocurrency Ripple on Friday, October 5, returned to decrease. In the first half of the day the bids are about $0,5202 (1.6 million%), according to Dmitry Gurkovsky, senior analyst at RoboForex.

The subsequent growth momentum helped to formulate a new fractal high, which makes it possible to outline the relevant corridor of the correction corridor. Current resistance level stands at $0,6100.

Locally there is a development of the down trend to the lower boundary of the corrective channel to the level of $0,4185, but also as the goal of reducing the need to consider the level of 76.0 per cent ($0,3890)..

1-hour timeframe Ripple demonstrates the development of the down-trend within a stable corridor. A new impulse reduction may be directed to the support lines – to the level of $0,4500, after reaching which, we can expect a pullback to around $0,4885. The current resistance level of $0,5300 is a major local barrier to the development of growth momentum. A break of that level would signal growth to the main resistance – $0,6100.
