Ripple also did not contain the accrued gains above $0.19, leading to another slide under the Bollinger Band 1-hour middle curve. Luckily, the buyer congestion at the confluence formed by the 50 SMA, the 100 SMA and the Bollinger Band 1-hour lower curve formed support around $0.1880.

The MACD is seating above the midline while encouraging consolidation. A breakout above $0.19 is needed for the bulls to shift their focus back to $0.20.
