Later, the price started a downside correction and moved below the $0.3500 level. There was also a break below the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last upside from the $0.3189 low to $0.3580 swing high.
However, the price found a strong buying interest near the $0.3400 level. There is also a crucial bullish trend line in place with support at $0.3410 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. More importantly, the price is holding the 50% Fib retracement level of the last upside from the $0.3189 low to $0.3580 swing high. If the price breaks the trend line and $0.3400, it could test the 100 hourly simple moving average at $0.3360.

Therefore, dips from the current levels are likely to find support near $0.3360, $0.3310 and $0.3300.
