It seems like there is a key expanding triangle forming with resistance near $0.2600 on the 4-hours chart of the XRP/USD pair. If the price stays above the 100 SMA, there are chances of an upside break above the $0.2580 and $0.2600 resistance levels.

Another Rejection in XRP?
If ripple fails to clear the $0.2580 and $0.2600 resistance levels, there is a risk of a fresh decline. An initial support is near the $0.2475 zone and the 100 SMA.
A downside break below the 100 SMA might put a lot of pressure on the bulls. The next main support is near the triangle trend line at $0.2420, below which the price could accelerate lower towards $0.2320.
