XRP/USD – Ripple Drops Into $0.20 Support Following the Breakdown Down

Since our previous analysis, XRP was still unable to break the $0.245 resistance level as it started losing momentum and dropped into the $0.235 support from last Saturday. Yesterday, on Sunday, XRP collapsed beneath the 2-month-old rising trend line as plummetted into the $0.20 support level.

The current low lies at $0.195, but following Bitcoin’s rebound, XRP managed to close the day above the critical support at $0.20, provided by a downside 1.618 Fib Extension. Earlier today, XRP encountered resistance at $0.217, which caused it to fall back to the current price levels. XRP is not trading at a 2-month low against the US dollar.

If the sellers break beneath $0.20, the next support can be found at $0.195. This is followed by support at $0.19 and $0.181, which had provided stiff support for the market during December 2019. Beneath this, further support is located at $0.17.

From above, resistance lies at $0.217. This is followed by resistance at $0.22, $0.227, ad $0.235. The RSI has bounced from oversold conditions; however, the momentum remains heavily in favor of the sellers.
