SEC’s Advantage Over Ripple Slips Away: XRP Price Analysis

The Precedent Set by SEC vs. Commonwealth LLP Case

Recently SEC has quoted an earlier case that might turn the tide of the SEC vs. Ripple Labs. The case in consideration was filed by SEC against Commonwealth Equity Services LLC, in which SEC got what it wanted, and the defendant was denied cross-motion for summary judgment. As per SEC's opinion, this supports their stance against Ripple Labs.

The case of Commonwealth Equity Services LLC vs. SEC reached a conclusion.

A cross-motion is a motion filed against the opposite party in a court.

Ripple's Response

Ripple Labs responded swiftly, and their lawyer Michael Kellog and the team submitted a letter to the judge. The letter stated that in the Commonwealth Equity Services LLC case, the defendants did not disclose additional information in the investment contract because their paid advisor did not see it necessary.

However, in the case of Ripple Labs, there was no investment contract at all. They further added that SEC used vague guidance from the Howey Test.

Here is the expanded version of the letter.

Effect on XRP Price

XRP Price gained 5% as soon as Ripple's response was made public by their lawyer Michael Kellog. The move almost broke the resistance at $0.54, which halted the prices.

XRP Price Analysis

XRP has shown a positive price action after the reply became public. It has cooled down a little after reaching $0.54 and is now at $0.52. There is a probability of $0.86 once two hurdles are crossed at $0.78 and $0.64. Let us analyze in detail with technical analysis.

Deviating from our earlier trend of only using RSI and MACD, we are now also using trend lines to identify support and resistance.

  • The daily charts show two resistances at $0.64(minor resistance) and $0.78 (major resistance).
  • Since MACD is negative at this point, we will buy only above today's day high of $0.54 or when MACD is positive. The level of $0.54 is now a clear resistance.
  • Above $0.54, there are two resistances, as discussed above.
  • Since volumes are low, it is suggested that traders take low-amount trades. Low volumes cause a very steep fall in prices once markets turn bad.
  • However, since the 50-day EMA is higher than 200 days EMA, the market is still bullish for XRP.
