XRP’s Fate Hangs on SEC v Ripple Case and Potential Appeals

- Advertisement -
  • XRP witnessed a 1.47% increase, driven by dovish Federal Reserve projections, while concerns about SEC litigation capped its gains.
  • The outcome of the SEC vs. Ripple case and potential appeals remain key factors influencing XRP’s future.

XRP Navigates Through Market Uncertainty

XRP experienced a modest rise of 1.47% on Wednesday, concluding the trading session at $0.6279. This increase came amid a broader crypto market rally triggered by the Federal Open Market Committee’s (FOMC) dovish projections, which fueled investor appetite for riskier assets. XRP’s ascent to a high of $0.6351 during the session mirrored the market’s response to the less hawkish interest rate outlook for 2024.

However, XRP’s performance remained relatively subdued compared to the broader market. Bitcoin (BTC), for instance, saw a more robust gain of 3.47%, closing at $42,954. The total crypto market capitalization reflected a similar trend, with a 2.84% increase to $1,571 billion.

Regulatory Scrutiny and Legal Proceedings Weigh on XRP

The uncertainty surrounding the SEC’s case against Ripple has been a persistent headwind for XRP. Wednesday saw no significant updates in the SEC vs. Ripple litigation, leaving investors to ponder the potential impact of an SEC appeal on the Programmatic Sales ruling. In July, the court deemed XRP not a security when sold programmatically on exchanges or via trading algorithms. The SEC’s subsequent appeal attempt was rejected in October, meaning any appeal would have to wait until after the conclusion of the current case.

Ripple and the SEC are advancing through remedies-related discovery, focusing on XRP sales to institutional investors. US case law might lean in Ripple’s favor regarding penalties, but the SEC’s interest appears to center on reversing the Programmatic Sales ruling. A final resolution or appeal in the SEC vs. Ripple case is expected no earlier than summer 2024, with the possibility of extending into 2025.

XRP’s Market Outlook: Technical Analysis Insights

On the technical front, XRP’s daily chart shows the cryptocurrency maintaining its position above the 50-day and 200-day Exponential Moving Averages (EMAs), indicating bullish signals. A breakthrough above the $0.6354 resistance could open a path towards the $0.7047 level. However, a decline below the 50-day EMA might see XRP testing the $0.60 and $0.5835 support levels.

The 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) at 49.34 suggests a potential drop towards the $0.5835 support before entering oversold territory. The 4-hourly chart presents a mixed picture, with XRP below the 50-day EMA but above the 200-day EMA, suggesting short-term bearish but longer-term bullish signals.

Investors and traders are advised to monitor US lawmaker commentary, SEC activity, and developments in the SEC vs. Crypto case for further market direction cues.
