- Ripple has continued to lose ground from April highs around $1.95 toward $1.
- Breaking under the descending channel’s middle boundary’s support could trigger massive losses toward $0.9.
Ripple was one of the best-performing cryptocurrencies in the first two weeks of April. The cross-border token made giant slides not seen since the breakdown in December when the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed a lawsuit against Ripple Labs and its top executives for selling unregistered tokens to raise funds.
Ripple suffered a rejection near $2 last week. However, support at $1.6 ensured that the bearish advances were checked while market stability protected. However, volatility swept across the market on Sunday, leaving most investors wrecked.
Bitcoin dropped close to $50,000 from highs above $60,000 while Ethereum extended the bearish leg to $2,000. The international remittance token hit lows around $1.12 before a reflex recovery pulled XRP slightly above $1.5.
Nonetheless, the entire cryptocurrency market has continued to suffer under the aggressive bears’ hands. Ripple is back to seeking support at $1.2 while holding firmly to the descending channel’s middle boundary support. The 100 Simple Moving Average (SMA) is also in line to prove the much-needed refuge, in turn, averting potential losses toward $1.
