Ripple’s XRP token has enjoyed a magnificent rally to $1.44 after rising by 59.28% from Friday’s low of $0.87.
The world’s fourth largest cryptocurrency by market cap is 11.29% up over the past 24-hours following developments in XRP’s legal case with the SEC.
The US regulator is currently investigating Ripple over sales of the XRP token that is alleged to have been an unregistered sale of securities.
However, XRP’s recent price action suggests that investors believe a positive outcome will be made, in spite of skepticism from the wider cryptocurrency industry.
From a technical perspective, if XRP can take out the psychological level of resistance at $1.50, it will likely go on to test the yearly high of $1.97 before attempting to break its 2018 all-time high of $3.31.
However, a rejection from here will see XRP fall back into wide range between $1.16 and $1.45, with downside price targets beginning to emerge back down at $0.87.
Much of it will also depend on the trajectory of Bitcoin, which has recently risen from $47,000 to $55,000 after investors capitalised on an oversold territory beneath $50,000.
If Bitcoin can continue its rally from here, upside price action will also be reflected across altcoins like XRP, ETH and LTC.
