Looking at the 30-minute chart of XRP/USD, the pair traded as high as $0.3996 and later started a fresh decline. It moved below the $0.3900 support and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $0.3387 low to $0.3996 high.

More importantly, there was a close below the $0.3850 support and the 25 simple moving average (30-minute). Besides, there was a break below a key bullish trend line with support at $0.3750 on the same chart.

The price declined below $0.3700 and tested the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $0.3387 low to $0.3996 high. The current price action is slightly bearish and it indicates that the price may continue to struggle.

On the downside, an immediate support is at $0.3605, below which there is a risk of more declines towards the $0.3500 and $0.3450 support levels.

On the upside, the price must break the $0.3800 level and a connecting bearish trend line at $0.3850 on the same chart. A successful close above $0.3850 and $0.3900 may open the doors for another push towards the $0.4000 hurdle.

Overall, ripple price seems to be stuck between the $0.4000 resistance and the $0.3605 support. Therefore, XRP may soon make the next move either above $0.4000 or towards $0.3450. Further below $0.3450, the price may even test the $0.3387 swing low in the near term.
