Well, the Ripple community and in particular, the XRP Army are ecstatic. Coinciding with the Stock Market slump, Trump decision to pump up the pressure on China and the rally of Bitcoin and other asset prices, Ripple (XRP) bulls are back. But, this hasn’t been the case in the last six weeks.

For what is clear-even from the charts, is a consolidating, 10 cents ranging asset. Prices were moving within tight ranges that some analysts have been comparing the world’s third valuable asset to a stable coin thanks to its low volatility.

However, volatility is back and behind it a conviction of ramping up as bulls flow back, jerking up prices from Q1 2019 lows of 30 cents. Behind this expansion are theories as traders, analysts and investors try to explain the sudden double digit, 44.7 percent surge.

Of the many, news of CoinBase Pro allowing trading of the asset in New York is a testament of XRP’s utility. Through tweet, the San Francisco exchange said XRP will be available for trading, three months after listing the asset and later availing it for trading via its retail platform.

The fact that XRP is now available for trading at one of the strictest state in the US is stabilizing. Besides, it could mean the asset, even without the US SEC clarifying, is not a security or an investment asset compliant with stipulations of the Howey Test.

XRP/USD Price Analysis


At the time of press, Ripple (XRP) is up 44.7 percent in the last week. Because of yesterday’s surge, the conditions of our previous XRP/USD trade plans are valid and buyers are back in charge. It is not hard to see why.

Apart from the positive reaction of XRP prices from Q1 2019 lows and main support at 30 cents, there is a double bar bull reversal pattern of Apr-25-26, series of higher highs and then yesterday’s take-off that all but cements our position that XRP is bullish but under consolidation.

Although risk-off, aggressive traders can load up on dips, fine-tuning their entries in lower time frames; risk-averse, conservative traders can load up once there is a high-volume break above 43 cents. That would entail a bullish breakout, a break from a half-year consolidation that would trigger participation that may pump prices towards 60 cents or Dec 2018 highs and towards 80 cents or Sep 2018 highs in a retest phase. It will be interesting to see how XRP fares with the recent rise of Bitcoin's price as well.
