Ripple’s XRP price is showing positive signs

The triangle resistance is close to the 50% fib retracement level of the downward move from the high of $ 0.3302 to the low of $ 0.2811. A successful break above the triangle resistance may require a break above the $ 0.3100 resistance.
A successful close above $ 0.3000 and $ 0.3100 could open the doors for steady rise. The next hurdle could be $ 0.3300, above which the price could test $ 0.3500.
Fresh immersion in XRP?
If the ripple does not break through the $ 0.3000 and $ 0.3100 resistance levels, it can be corrected lower. The first major support is near the USD 0.2880 zone and the 100 SMA (H4).
A downside break below the $ 0.2850 triangle trendline and the 100 SMA (H4) could accelerate losses. In the aforementioned case, the price could fall sharply towards the USD 0.2600 support zone in the near future.
