XRP consolidated yesterday at the two-hour EMA55 but in the evening, sellers tried to push the pair below the average price level. However, support at $0.19 limited the rollback. This morning a second re-test of this support is possible, and in the future, we can expect it to return to the psychological mark of $0.20.

On the 4H time frame, XRP is bouncing off the declining trading volume. The current movement is considered a correction after the fall but not a sign of buyers trying to push the price up. The ongoing growth may continue to $0.20, followed by a decrease to $0.1935. If bulls can hold above $0.20, it could avoid such a drop.

On the daily chart, XRP keeps trading within the falling channel since the coin failed to hold above $0.2353. The trading volume has not increased. Moreover, it keeps decreasing gradually, confirming a bearish impulse. Summing up, the next support is at $0.184. This was the starting-point at which buyers started the bull run. If bears break it, the bearish trend that ended in mid-March will resume.

XRP is trading at $0.1963 at press time.
