The XRP/USD pair broke a crucial support yesterday near the $0.4270 level, which opened the doors for more declines. Today, the price tumbled below the $0.3800 and $0.3600 support levels. The trend was such that the price even broke the $0.3500 level. A low was formed at $0.3400 and it seems like the price may continue to move down.
An initial resistance on the upside is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $0.4138 high to $0.3400 low. There is also a major bearish trend line in place with resistance at $0.3900 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $0.4138 high to $0.3400 low is also positioned near the $0.3750 level.
