The XRP / USD pair traded below the level of $ 0.3150 and formed a new weekly low of $ 0.3134. Later, the price started a high correction above the resistance levels of $ 0.3140 and $ 0.3150. Buyers gained traction above the resistance of $ 0.3200 and the level of retraction of 50% from the last drop, from $ 0.3325 to $ 0.3134.
This opened the door to more gains and the price was traded toward the $ 0.3260 level and the 100 percent moving average. However, the price struggled to stay above the 61.8% level of fiber retraction from the last fall, from $ 0.3325 to $ 0.3134. In addition, yesterday's low-key trend line is intact, with resistance close to $ 0.3280 on the XRP / USD pair's hourly chart. Sooner or later, the pair could try to push past the trend line and $ 0.328.
If buyers can clear the $ 0.3280 resistance area, there is a chance of a strong bullish move above the $ 0.333 level. The next key resistance is at 1236 Fib extension level of the last drop from $ 0.3325 high to $ 0.3134 low to $ 0.3372. On the other hand, if the price does not move above the resistance of $ 0.3280, there may be a further decline. On the downside, initial support is at $ 0.3200, below which the price could be traded toward the levels of $ 0.3160 and $ 0.3150.
Looking at the chart, the price of the ripple is showing positive signs above $ 0.3200. That said, a good closing above $ 0.3280 and $ 0.33300 is needed for more short-term gains. If the bulls continue to fight close to $ 0.3280, there may be another low reaction below $ 0.3200 in the upcoming sessions.
