XRP rallied by 9.5% on Friday, with support coming from a broad-based crypto rally.
However, adding to the upside was investor sentiment towards the outcome of the SEC v Ripple case, with investors betting on a settlement.
Technical indicators are bullish, with XRP sitting above the 100-day EMA.
On Friday, XRP rallied by 9.5% to lead the crypto top ten. Following a 4.1% gain on Thursday, XRP ended the day at $03669.
A bullish morning saw XRP surge from an early low of $0.3351 to a late morning high of $0.3868.
XRP broke through the day’s Major Resistance Levels before a pullback to end the day at $0.37.
While falling back to sub-$0.37, XRP avoided a fall through the Third Major Resistance Level at $0.3614.
Despite a second consecutive day in the green, XRP remains under pressure as investors await the court ruling in the SEC v Ripple case.
Court Ruling on Hinman Speech-Related Documents Pivotal to XRP
The SEC, Ripple, and Investors are currently awaiting a court ruling that could have a material impact on XRP and the broader-crypto market.
Hinman has become the focal point of the case as both sides navigate the question of whether XRP is a security.
This year, the SEC has focused primarily on ensuring that the defense and the public don’t see the content of Hinman’s speech-related documents. The SEC continues to claim that these documents fall under the attorney-client privilege.
With the courts entertaining the SEC filings, allowing the SEC to file at least six motions to protect the documents under the attorney-client privilege, the ruling could go either way. Some may argue that Judge Sarah Netburn has given the SEC some wriggle room to eliminate the chance of more motions or even an appeal.
As a ruling nears, XRP has found support, rising from a June 18 current year low of $0.2868. Ultimately, XRP should make its way to December 2020 levels, the month the SEC filed its case against Ripple.
For XRP holders, a favorable outcome would then support a run at the April 2021 high of $1.965.
The upside potential could be significant, which may draw sidelined investors back into the market.
