Today, Ripple (XRP) has fallen to $0.194 low after it reached the overbought region at $0.235. The downward move has been systematic. As sellers emerged at the overbought region, XRP dropped to $0.21 and resumed upward correction. The correction was interrupted at the $0.225 resistance. Buyers failed to break the resistance and the downtrend line. Consequently, on May 10, a breakdown sank Ripple to $0.175 low. The price corrected upward again but was stopped at the $0.205 resistance.
The coin has been trading below the current resistance. On the upside, if the bulls break the current resistance or the downtrend line, the market would have risen to retest the overhead resistance. The downtrend will continue as long as the downtrend line remains unbroken. However, as buyers fail to breach the resistance at $0.205, XRP fell to $0.19 low. Currently, price is fluctuating above the current support.
