After a substantial downside correction, ripple found support near the $0.2800 level. The price started a fresh and steady increase above the $0.2850 and $0.2920 resistance levels.
The upward move was positive, with a close above the $0.2920 level and the price is now trading well above the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). There was also a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $0.3200 swing high to $0.2789 swing low.
More importantly, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $0.2990 on the 4-hours chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair is now trading nicely above the $0.3000 level.
An immediate resistance is near the $0.3050 level. It is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $0.3200 swing high to $0.2789 swing low. A successful break above the $0.3050 level could open the doors for more gains above the $0.3120 and $0.3150 levels.
The main hurdle is near the $0.3200 level, above which the bulls are likely to aim a larger rally in the near future towards the $0.3500 and $0.3600 levels.
On the downside, the first major support is near the $0.2920 level. If ripple fails to continue higher above $0.3050, there is a risk of a bearish wave.
The main support is near the $0.2800 level, below which the price may perhaps start a steady decline towards the $0.2650 level in the coming days.
