XRP Has Had a Decent Support Base Against the USD in the Past Week
XRP has had a decent support base against the USD in the past week. The XRP/USD pair stayed stable above $0.3000 and $0.3030 both support points. A swing low formed near the $0.2997 area and the price initiated an upward movement. XRP is currently indicating positive signals. It is now trading above the resistance areas at $0.3100 and $0.3150.

A Downside Correction is Still a Possibility for XRP

If XRP endures any more downsides, it’s price could revisit $0.3100 which is a support point. The most significant support area is close to $0.3030. In the event that there’s a downside break under $0.3030, XRP price could continue to go weaker in the near term.
Looking at the upside, the immediate resistance at $0.3250 level. However, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level via the last drop from $0.3419 to $0.2997 is another strong resistance area. A break above $0.3250 (another resistance) might clear the way for more gains via the near term.
