If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 100 hour timeframe.

  • From jesse_hynes:

    From the Ripple/SEC hearing, the biggest news drop was that the Defendants have proof that the SEC has had discussions with many market actors and exchanges re XRP, in 2019 and before, and never told them that XRP was a security or sold as a security. HUGE DUE PROCESS ISSUE

  • From xrp_mami:

    If you don’t like XRP sell. If you do then keep buying or HODL or whatever it is that you do. But complaining everyday about an investment is literally the most childish shit. folks need to grow up. If there’s gains to be made in other ALTs. Sell your bag and go buy 🙄

  • From xrp_mami:

    Mami Loves y’all 😘 believe me we’re going to the moon $XRP. Enthusiasm aside. The proof is in the research and the progress of companies building around the XRPL. First you connect the networks (IOV). Then you turn on the tap (liquidity). Don’t rob your future cuz of impatience.

Former SEC Chair Mary Jo White, who’s Now Representing Ripple in SEC Lawsuit, Shares Views on XRP Sale and Court Case

The SEC’s lawsuit also led to Ripple hiring high-profile legal experts in order to defend its business….White noted in a recent interview with Fortune that the SEC may have made a big mistake in filing a lawsuit against Ripple for the alleged sale of unregistered securities….Defendants undertook this distribution without registering their offers and sales of XRP with the SEC as required by the federal securities laws, and no exemption from this requirement applied.” The suit also mentioned: “Defendants continue to hold substantial amounts of XRP and—with no registration statement in effect—can continue to monetize their XRP while using the information asymmetry they created in the market for their own gain, creating substantial risk to investors.” The suit further alleges: “Garlinghouse [and Larsen] knowingly or recklessly provided substantial assistance to Ripple’s violations of Sections 5(a) and 5(c) of the Securities Act, including by, from 2015 to the present, deciding when and how much XRP Ripple would sell, establishing the XRP Escrow, making promotional statements with respect to XRP, spearheading Ripple’s efforts to attempt to increase demand for XRP, and making his own sales of XRP.
