XRP/USD: Will the drop continue to support at $0.15?
Last Sunday, the $0.190 level hardly restrained sellers' attempts to squeeze XRP out of the side range. Last night, this support could not withstand another onslaught, and the price set a local minimum at $0.185.
In the morning, the decline stopped and buyers have been trying to return the price to the side range. If it fails to break the $0.19 line, then the decline will continue to the upper border of the purple downward channel.
On the 4H chart, XRP has settled below $0.1870, confirming the start of a long-term bearish trend. However, the bullish divergence has been formed on the RSI indicator, suggesting a possible correction. In this case, traders can expect a retest of the $0.1870 level before another wave of the decline starts.
On the daily time frame, the MACD indicator is declining, which means that bulls are unlikely to come back to the crucial level of $0.20. Thus, XRP keeps trading within the falling channel where the nearest support is the bottom of the channel at $0.17. The decreasing trading volume confirms the ongoing bearish mood.
XRP is trading at $0.1844 at press time.
