On the hourly chart, XRP has bounced off the support at $0.2950, confirming the bullish mood. The trading volume is moderate; however, liquidity is low, which means that buyers lack energy to keep pushing the rate of the altcoin to new peaks.

In this regard, there is a chance to reach $0.3143, followed by a further correction.

On the 4H chart, the situation is also positive and bulls keep pushing XRP to new heights. The MACD indicator is about to leave the bearish zone, having confirmed buyers' dominance. If the trading volume remains at the same level or even increases, XRP can return to the local resistance level at $0.3195 by the end of the week.

On the daily chart, the bullish trend is about to end as bulls are as powerful as before based on the trading volume, which is declining. Also, liquidity is low, which means there are almost no traders that want to buy the coin at the current rates. For this reason, a decline may begin soon and roll back XRP to $0.29.

XRP is trading at $0.3061 at press time.
