Earlier, the XRP/USD pair climbed higher and traded above the $0.3260 and $0.3400 resistance levels. It tested the key $0.3500 resistance area, where sellers emerged. As a result, there was a sharp downward move and the price declined below $0.3310 and $0.3260. There was even a close below the $0.3250 support and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).

Moreover, there is a significant bullish trend line formed with support at $0.3010 on the 4-hours chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair traded as low as $0.3002 and it is currently correcting higher. An initial resistance is near the $0.3125 level. It coincides with the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.3515 high to $0.3002 low.
If there is an upside break above the $0.3125 resistance, the price could trade towards the $0.3250 and $0.3260 resistances. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.3515 high to $0.3002 low is positioned near the $0.3258 level.
