During the rise, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance at $0.2800 on the 2-hours chart of the XRP/USD pair. These all are positive signs above $0.3000 and the price seems to be consolidating currently in a range above $0.3120.
The previous resistance near the $0.3120 level is now acting as a strong support for buyers. Though, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.2660 low to $0.3347 high.
However, downsides were limited by the $0.3120 support and the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.2660 low to $0.3347 high.
As long as the price is above the $0.3120 support area, there could be more range moves in the short term. On the upside, if ripple price surpasses the $0.3347 high, there could be more gains towards the $0.3400 and $0.3500 levels. On the other hand, below $0.3120, the price may perhaps test $0.3020.
