Ripple’s controversial XRP token has slumped to its lowest point in more than six weeks with it now testing the $0.1825 level of support.
The move to the downside follows a two-month period of consolidation as XRP struggled to breach the daily 200 moving average.
The 200MA has been a key point of resistance since the 2018 bear market with it only trading above it twice during a six-week period in 2019 and during a three-week period earlier this year.
Breaking above the 200MA would indicate a bullish reversal but for now it remains unlikely with trade volume dropping off significantly.
What’s more likely is a further slide in price down to the yearly low of $0.145, which is also a three-year low.
The chart paints a depressing picture for XRP supporters and investors, with no end in sight for the downtrend dating back to the 2018 all-time high of $3.35.
Shockingly, XRP is more than 94% lower than its all-time high with all of the hype and optimism that surrounded the ICO bubble now having withered away.
The plunge in the price of XRP will come as a surprise to those who are following Ripple and the company’s recent updates, with Coin Rivet reporting this week on how they’re expanding remittance corridors after a successful trial between the United States and Mexico.
