Disadvantages that are likely to be limited in XRP
In the short term, the ripple could be corrected below $ 0.2020. However, the bulls are likely to defend the support levels of $ 0.2000 and $ 0.1985.
If there is a bearish break below the $ 0.1985 support, there is a risk of a trend line. The last line of defense could be 100 simple 4-hour moving averages and $ 0.1965, below which the price could be $ 0.1900 again.
