XRP/USD 4-hour chart

Ripple has been moving in a bullish channel for a while now and it seems like 0.20 was just a step too far. Analysing the 4-hour chart you can see the moving averages have crossed over in a bullish fashion. There has also been some good volume on the uptrend and the RSI indicator moved into bullish territory. If this is where the price starts to turn lower then the red support zone of 0.1835 could be important. 

Away from this, the black line which is the bottom of the channel could act like support. If that level breaks then the green line just above 0.16 is the next support zone. The market is in a competitive movement of higher highs and higher lows. But for the trend to continue 0.20 needs to be broken.
