It also moved above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.3070 high to $0.2776 low.

Sellers pushed the price below the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.2776 low to $0.2946 high. The current price is slightly bearish, with many hurdles on the upside near $0.2900 and $0.2950. There are also two bearish trend lines in place with resistance near $0.2900 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. A clear break and close above these trend lines is needed for a recovery above $0.3000. If not, there is a risk of a downside break below the $0.2820 support level. It may even break the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $0.2776 low to $0.2946 high.
