Ripple (XRP) has been trapped between $0.185 and $0.195 for the past two weeks. In the last breakdown on June 11, the fourth largest cryptocurrency plunged to $0.185 low and resumed consolidation. The bulls were making frantic efforts to push price above $0.195 resistance. Buyers made four attempts to retest the resistance but were repelled as the market continued its consolidation.
On the upside, a strong bounce above $0.19 will propel price to break above the $0.195 resistance. The momentum will extend to $0.205 high. Ripple upward move is possible if the bulls break the downtrend line.
XRP will continue to rise if price breaks and closes above the downtrend line. The market will continue the current consolidation if the downtrend line remains intact. Nonetheless, if the bulls turn down after failing to break the $0.195 resistance, it shows a lack of buying at higher levels. The bears will take advantage of the bull’s inability at the resistance to break the support at $0.185. The coin will further depreciate to $0.14 low if the current support is breached.
