SEC Lawsuit Hype – Ripple Cools – XRP Price Risks 25% Drop?

XRP rose 2.1 percent to $0.52 on April 11, extending daily gains from $0.50 as traders pinned their hopes on a broader crypto market rally on the possibility of lower inflation data on April 12.

The upward move brings Ripple’s coin closer to a bullish flag-shaped range breakout with a target of $0.65.

However, the lackluster volume coupled with a bullish move points to downside risks ahead. In other words, expect a short-term decline towards the lower trendline of the flag near $0.51, or a broader correction in April, which would completely invalidate the bullish continuation setup.

If the fractal reappears, XRP will likely slip to multi-month rising trendline support around $0.4 in May, roughly 25% below current prices.

XRP prices are up nearly 55% in 2023, largely due to predictions that Ripple will win a lawsuit against the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). In particular, prices jumped 43% in March alone in anticipation of a ruling at the end of the month.

But the reality is not like this. Meanwhile, the keyword “SEC vs. Ripple” fell to 56 in the week ended April 8 from a high of 100 (out of 100) in March.

Ultimately, XRP is still following in Bitcoin’s footsteps on the daily time frame. However, according to reports, BTC is likely to correct to $25,000 in the short term due to the risk of U.S. rate hikes, putting XRP and other altcoins at risk of losses as well.
