The price is currently moving higher after touching the lower Bollinger Band. Similarly, the Bollinger Bands gap is widening to indicate that the bullish trend is strong. The stochastic on the hourly chart is in the oversold, which means that the sellers are getting exhausted and buyers are finding entry positions. XRP/USD will encounter resistance at $0.440, $0.445 (broken support) and $0.450 supply zones. As mentioned $0.430 is the immediate supported, but $0.420 will come in handy in case a reversal occurs.
