There was a spike above the $0.3060 level and the recent swing high was formed near the $0.3065 level. At the moment, the price is correcting lower below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $0.2930 low to $0.3065 high.

Additionally, there is a major rising channel forming with support near $0.2990 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. More importantly, the 100 hourly SMA is near the $0.2980 area to provide support.
Therefore, a downside break below the $0.2980 support might start an extended correction. The next major support is near the $0.2950 level, below which the price might revisit the $0.2880 support zone, followed by the $0.2850 pivot area.
An intermediate support for ripple is near the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $0.2930 low to $0.3065 high. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $0.3060 level. If there is a clear break above the $0.3060 level, the price is likely to climb towards the $0.3100 and $0.3120 levels.
