At the time of this writing, Ripple’s price is up $0 (0.32%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bears operating on an hourly timeframe, as Ripple has now gone down 4 of the past 5 hours. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 50 hour timeframe. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a bearishness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a bearish alignment — meaning the shorter duration moving averages are below the longer duration averages, implying a stable downward trend.

  • From xrpartisan:

    I’m not concerned with XRP’s daily price. Once past $0.80 and close to $1 I’ll start getting a little excited b/c it has a clear path to $2.30 and the ATH. It’s coming soon b/c of alt season, but I’m not stressing over it. I sold into XRP w/other gains to max profit. Now I wait.

  • From JohnEDeaton1:

    In the @SEC 🆚 @Ripple case, the SEC does not seek a preliminary injunction to stop current sales of #XRP by Ripple. Why? Because it can’t make a “substantial” showing of a likelihood of success as to a “current” violation.The mere filing of the Complaint was the weapon!

  • From XRP_OWL:

    Looking at the XRP price daily is pointless, you’ll never get that wasted time back.Social media won’t give clues about price action either because people post 👀 every time we go up 2%Just understand what you hold, set alerts, and check in maybe once a week. 😉🙏

Is Ripple an option for CBDCs while SEC lawsuit lingers? – FinanceFeeds

It is unclear if Ripple is addressing central banks with its white paper as a way to put pressure on the ongoing legal battle with the SEC….Either way, central banks may also hesitate to work with Ripple at this particular time.
