As long as the price is above the $0.2380 support, it could start a fresh upward move. An initial resistance is near the $0.2420 level. The first major resistance is near the $0.2450 level, above which the price might revisit the $0.2485 high. Any further gains could initiate a steady rise towards the $0.2550 resistance zone.

Bearish Break in XRP?

If ripple fails to stay above the $0.2380 support and the 100 hourly SMA, there is a risk of a fresh decline. The next major support is near the $0.2350 level.
