Ripple (XRP) has declined over the past three days after rejecting the high at $0.38. The decline has reached a low above the 21-day line SMA. The bears have this advantage to push the altcoin to the previous low at $0.30.
Subsequently, the downtrend will resume if the bears fall below the current support. In the previous price action, the bulls failed to maintain the upward momentum after crossing the 21-day line SMA. The uptrend was stopped at the high of $0.38. Had the bulls broken the 50-day line SMA, XRP would have risen to the high of $0.53. Today, XRP is trading above the 21-day line SMA, but below the 50-day line SMA. A break below the 21-day line SMA will put the altcoin under downward pressure again.
