Looking at the 30-minute chart of XRP/USD, the pair even broke the $0.3225 support and the 25 simple moving average (30-minute chart). However, the $0.3180-0.3200 support area acted as a major barrier for sellers.
A low was formed at $0.3172 and later the price started an upside correction. At the moment, the price is testing a significant resistance near the $0.3220 level. More importantly, there is a crucial contracting triangle formed with resistance near $0.3240 on the same chart.
The $0.3240 resistance coincides with the 25 simple moving average (30-minute chart) and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.3474 high to $0.3172 low.
Should ripple buyers succeed in gaining strength above $0.3240 and $0.3250, the price could accelerate towards the $0.3280 and $0.3300 resistance levels. The next key resistance is at $0.3320 and the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.3474 high to $0.3172 low.
On the other hand, if there is a downside break below the $0.3200 and $0.3180 supports, sellers are likely to gain control. The next stop could be $0.3100 and $0.3050. Overall, ripple seems to be preparing for the next break either above $0.3240 or below $0.3180. The price action is positive and there are high chances of an upside break above $0.3240 and $0.3260 in XRP in the near term.
