XRP / USD: Technical picture

On the intraday chart, XRP / USD is supported by the center line of the 1-hour Bollinger Band ($ 0.1963) and the 1-hour SMA50 (currently $ 0.1950). This support area is followed by a 1 hour SMA100 at $ 0.1945 / Once that thick barrier is removed, the sell-off can continue towards the psychological $ 0.1900 which has served as the lower level of the most recent consolidation range since April 23rd.

On the upside, a sustained move above $ 0.2000 is required for the upside move to gain ground. This barrier coincides with the recent consolidation channel and the top line of the daily Bollinger Band. The next resistance is created by the 23.6% fibo retracement for the downward move from the February 2020 high at $ 0.2130.

According to Mike McGlone, senior commodity strategist at Bloomberg Intelligence, Ripple has the potential to disrupt the cross-border payments industry. However, volatility in the cryptocurrency market can slow the adoption of Ripple technology.

In the recently released Crypto Outlook report, McGlone commented:

Ripple Labs’ partnership with MoneyGram in 2019 suggests markets still see the potential for disruption to cross-border payments, but Ripple’s exposure to its own cryptocurrency threatens the enterprise software company. The project’s investors, including Mastercard, Visa, Capital One, Citigroup, and Bank of America, are likely only to hedge themselves.

He added that banks and financial institutions would be unwilling to adopt blockchain infrastructure solutions for clearing, settlement and payments on a large scale unless they have common standards and are approved by regulators.
