Surprisingly, Ripple has been stagnant, soon after the breakdown at the $0.20 resistance. For over a week, price has been fluctuating below the $0.20 resistance without any discernible direction of price movement.
Despite the low volatility, Ripple’s bulls have rebounded thrice to break the $0.20 resistance but to no avail. On each partial breakout above the $0.20 resistance, the market will suddenly drop to $0.192 low.
In other words, on every retest at the resistance, XRP has a corresponding bearish reaction. However, significant price movement is underway despite the volatility. Presently, Ripple is confined in a range between $0.192 and $0.20. The upward move has been repelled by stiff selling pressure at the $0.20 resistance. Since May, the support has been holding after bearish onslaught. Any breakdown will portend negatively on the coin.
