XRP rallied to its highest point since November 18 over the weekend, testing the 200 exponential moving average and the $0.26 level of resistance.
XRP is now 38% up since its low of $0.18 on December 17, with the market cap increasing by $3 billion to $11 billion.
From a technical standpoint it needs to break above the 200 EMA as it has not traded above that point since last July, weeks after it surged to a yearly high of $0.51.
A clear breakout would not only give investors confidence but also ease the scrutiny on Ripple’s CEO Brad Garlinghouse, who has been vigorous in his defence of the project over the past year.
He has, on numerous occasions, stated that XRP is “not a security” despite regulatory ambiguity while also defending against a lawsuit filed by aggrieved XRP investors who claim OTC token sales have caused the recent decline in price.
