Ripple’s controversial XRP token continues to trade above the psychological level of support of $1.00 as investors anticipate a long-awaited conclusion to Ripple’s ongoing case with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
It is, however, beginning to show signs of fragility on higher time frames having formed a lower high at $1.41 from its all-time high of $1.97.
Relative Strength Index (RSI) is teetering around the 42.6 mark, significantly lower than when it initially broke above $1.00 in August, which indicates weakness.
Daily trade volume is at $3.1 billion, a 6.17% decrease on yesterday’s total as momentum shifts slightly to the downside.
In spite of a series of bearish indicators, if XRP can maintain its level of support above $1.00, it could provide an ideal platform for a surge back to its all-time high over the coming months depending on the verdict of the ongoing lawsuit.
Much of it will also depend on the trajectory of the cryptocurrency market as a whole. If Bitcoin can begin to push back above the local top at $53,000, XRP will likely follow its lead with a move back to around $1.40.
If the $1.00 level breaks, levels of support remain at $0.92 and $0.84 with another key level coming in at $0.77.
Short term points of resistance are at $1.13, $1.19 and $1.33.
