Ripple’s daily confluence chart shows several clusters of support levels on the way down. The first local barrier comes on approach to $0.4. It is the lowest level of the previous hour and a prior resistance area. Once it is verified as a support, the price will shoot to new highs again.

If it is cleared, the downside correction may be extended towards $0.38, reinforced by the Pivot Point 1-day Resistance 3. It separates XRP from a deeper decline towards $0.35, created by Pivot Point 1-week Resistance 1 and the upper line of the Bollinger Band.
