SEC Files Brief On Hinman Speech As XRP Lawsuit Drags On

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) retaliated in its lawsuit against Ripple Labs with a reply brief supporting its objections to orders requesting the disclosure of a 2018 speech made by former SEC director William Hinman. The SEC’s brief, submitted Tuesday, states that the speech drafts “are not relevant to any claim or defense in this matter.” Even if they were, the SEC argues that the “deliberative process privilege still protects them.” The SEC claimed that the speech documents are “predecisional” since they represent the staff members’ individual opinions rather than agency policy. XRP Token According to data from CoinMarketCap, XRP, the native token of the XRP Ledger developed by Ripple Labs, traded up 4.9% over the last 24 hours at US$0.3896 at 12:30 p.m. in Hong Kong. Following the filing of objections to Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn’s earlier orders requiring the SEC to release internal Hinman speech draughts, the agency issued its most recent brief on July 27. Judge Netburn rejected the SEC’s attorney-client privilege claims on July 12. SEC Sued Ripple in December 2020 The SEC sued Ripple in December 2020, claiming that the company’s issuance of XRP constituted unregistered security offering worth more than US$1.38 billion.

XMR Technical Analysis: Bulls Struggle To Keep Prices Above $150

The XMR price action shows a bull cycle struggling to gain momentum as it drags diagonally at the support trendline of a rising channel pattern. Key Technical Points: The Monero token price consolidates between the 20 and 200-day SMA. The higher price rejections from the 200-day SMA suppress the bull cycle within the rising channel. With a market cap of $3.05 billion, the intraday trading volume of Monero has increased by 37.86% to reach $138.56 million. Past Performance of XMR The Monero (XMR) price action sustains about the $150 support level while maintaining a diagonal uptrend moving close to the support trendline. Furthermore, the price action maintains the overall rising channel pattern accounting for a price jump of 56% in the last six weeks. Currently, the market price supports a sideways trend with the overhead resistance of the 200 days average line. Source – Tradingview XMR Technical Analysis The XMR price shows a 1.19% drop in the daily candle, following the higher price rejection of the previous candle. Hence the likelihood of a bearish breakout below the support trendline increases. Despite the higher price rejections from the 200 days average line, the Monero market prices sustained above the 100-day SMA. Hence the bullish influence over the 50 and 100 days SMA increases, easing a potential bullish crossover. The daily RSI slope maintains a diagonally negative trend in the nearly overboard zone displaying a bear...

XTZ Technical Analysis: Golden Buying Opportunity Arises At $2 Breakout

The XTZ price action shows a high momentum uptrend ready to break the overhead resistance of the rising channel to exceed $2. Key Technical Points: The Tezos token price has increased 10% in the last two days. The bull run plans to exit the rising channel and reach the next milestone at $2.21. With a market cap of $1.81 billion, the intraday trading volume of Tezos has increased by 82.30% to reach $76.11 million. Past Performance of XTZ As we mentioned in our previous analysis, the Tezos (XTZ) price took a bullish reversal to challenge the resistance trendline of the rising channel. The reversal rally accounts for a 10% jump over the last 48 hours and challenges the psychological mark of $2. Furthermore, the bearish failure to reach the support trend line or test the $1.66 horizontal level increases the possibility of a bullish breakout. Source – Tradingview XTZ Technical Analysis The XTZ price shows 5.10% growth in the daily candle, but the long wick formation delays the bullish breakout. Hence traders hoping to ride a breakout rally must wait for a price action confirmation to avoid a bearish reversal. The 50 and 100-day SMA prepares a bullish crossover as the Tezos market price sustains above the 100-day SMA. The daily RSI slope displays a sharp spike in the lateral trend within the nearly overbought zone, reflecting a boom in underlying bullishness.

XRP Price Could Rise If It Clears This Price Barrier

XRP Price has witnessed consolidation between the $0.30 and $0.37 mark for a considerable number of trading sessions. Over the last 24 hours, the altcoin has managed to hover around the same price mark without losing its market value. In the past week, XRP price has lost 2% of its value. Lateral trading had caused buying strength of the coin to be be affected. For the bulls to take charge, it is important for XRP to break past its sideways trading. XRP had formed higher highs and higher lows at the end of July. The bulls don’t seem to be able to push past the $0.37 mark. This could be pointed towards the lack of demand for XRP. The $0.37 mark has been a propelling point for the altcoin’s price, however, the bulls could not hold on to the momentum even then. With Bitcoin receding on its chart, many altcoins have also followed the same sentiment on their respective charts. Demand and broader market strength remain crucial for XRP. XRP Price Analysis: Four Hour Chart The altcoin at the time of writing was trading for $0.37. XRP had witnessed sharp resistance at the $0.39 price ceiling. Incase XRP price manages to topple over the $0.39 level, there could be a possibility for a rally. Additional resistance mark for the coin was at $0.40. The local support for XRP rested at $0.34. A fall below the $0.34 level will cause XRP to trade at $0.31. Amount of XRP traded over the last session had increased as the sellers were do...
