  • Ripple recovers from the dip at $0.1785 and holds the ground above $0.18.
  • XRP/USD risks free-fall to $0.14 if support areas at $0.18 and $0.1785 give in to the selling pressure.

Ripple has been exploring lower levels under $0.20 this June. Over the last 24 hours, the digital asset has dived below several support areas at $0.19, $0.1850 and $0.18. An intraday low has been formed at $0.1785 on Thursday. However, XRP has recovered to trade at $0.1820 at the time of writing.

The cryptoasset is likely to contain the losses above $0.18 as long as the RSI in the daily range holds above 35. Recovery towards the average would signal possible price action above $0.1850 and $0.19 resistance zones.

Looking at the MACD in the same range, traders cannot ignore the influence sellers have over the price. The indicator is moving sidelong marginally below the midline. A minor bearish divergence highlights the bearish pressure, perhaps keeping buyers away from significant upward movement.

On the flip side, if losses continue below $0.18 as well as $0.1785, Ripple could lose any chances of recovery until it finds balance at $0.14 (primary support). Note that in March, XRP plunged to $0.11 due to the Coronavirus-triggered crash across the market. On the brighter side, a fall of such extent could increase the demand for the token and eventually catapult it above $0.20.
