Another major factor affecting XRP price is MoneyGram’s decision to terminate the relationship with Ripple. The termination is likely to cause a downswing in the price of the digital asset.

(Source: Tradeview )
Ripple began the day at a low and is still 10% down Thursday’s high and 8% yesterday’s high. The price has been on a declining channel, shedding at least 3% of its value on the 24-hour chart. But we understand XRP is also recovering its December fall, following the SEC’s announcement to investigate the coin. For a while now since the start of the year, XRP/USD has been relatively volatile.
Proponents can remain hopeful. Because the price could jumpstart a trendline if it goes above $0.50. The possible rally could drive XRP’s price towards $0.65. Yet you should note the bears are strongly advocating for a price below $0.359. In case the bears win, the price might dip towards $0.25.
XRP/USD 4-Hour Chart
XRP hit a 4-hour high of $0.47001 before crashing downwards to $0.45804. The coin is currently on an upward momentum towards the $0.50 key resistance and is now trading at $0.46471. This pattern also appears as bullish and the digital asset could be headed for a near-term full recovery. The bears are also hopeful the coin will retest the lower support of $0.3600 due to the prevailing crypto market volatility. However, a benchmark to watch out for remains last month’s high of $0.6488.
XRP/USD Price Prediction
XRP traders should expect bearish volatilities. The market structure for the coin is overwhelmed by several circumstances that are hard to ignore. Including the incoming treasury yield, legal issues around MoneyGram, and overall volatility of the altcoin market.
XRP is also facing investigations under the SEC. A situation that saw the coin delisted on Coinbase and a few other exchanges. Ripple announced the legal suit cost XRP users over $15 billion in the course of the past three months. Do you think XRP/USD pair is going to rise above its adversities and rise above the $0.50 resistance?
