In the last days of the month, XRP traded between $0.16 and $0.17, closing March 31st above $0.17.
April started with a bullish trend, with the coin consistently climbing to $0,200869 on April 8th. XRP failed to maintain itself at this level and started a consolidation pattern, trading between $0.18 and $0.19 for the following weeks, failing to break the $0.20 resistance level.
On April 21 and April 22, XRP traded over $0.18 but failed to get past $0.19.
Charts are showing that strong support was forming around the $0.1850 level, with a bullish trend line forming as well at this level.
If XRP fails to stay above the $0.1850 support area, this could bring the coin back to $0.1800 level, but Ripple is likely staying over $0.1850 support and the trend line. The bulls will have to gain momentum to stay over the $0.1920 level in order to reach the $0.1950 level. The main resistance is set near above the $0.2000 level.
