XRP Price Caught in Legal Limbo, Eyes Breakout Despite Lawsuit

XRP Price Caught in Legal Limbo, Eyes Breakout Despite Lawsuit

XRP’s price struggles under the weight of the ongoing legal battle between Ripple Labs and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This uncertainty has dampened investor sentiment, keeping the price subdued.

Crypto analyst RLinda offers a glimmer of optimism, suggesting a possible decoupling for XRP. This means XRP’s price movement could diverge from the broader market trend, potentially leading to a breakout.

XRP/USD Technical Analysis

RLinda highlights some technical aspects supporting a potential decoupling:

  • Testing Wedge Resistance: XRP is attempting to break through a wedge pattern, a technical indicator often seen before a price surge.
  • Decreasing Volatility: Consolidation and decreasing volatility might precede a significant price move.

Price Target: The analyst estimates a potential rally to $0.6265 or even $0.73. However, XRP needs to hold support at $0.4637 and overcome resistances at $0.4962 and $0.5720.

Despite the potential for a decoupling, the ongoing lawsuit remains a significant hurdle. Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse expects a resolution by the end of summer, which could be a turning point for XRP.

XRP’s Recent Price Movement

  • XRP experienced a short-lived rally, testing the $0.4880 resistance zone.
  • The price has since corrected but bulls are defending the $0.4765 support level.
  • Technical indicators like MACD and RSI suggest weakening momentum but haven’t dipped into extreme bearish territory.
