Market simply ignores Ripple’s rapidly growing adoption

Over the past few months Ripple has enjoyed a series of positive news. Most of them were around the XRapid, that is faster and cheaper payment solution. With xRapid, money can be transferred between banks almost instantly, with XRP cryptocurrency being intermediary. Funds can be transferred with the local currency and then exchanged to the XRP, that is before sending them to any country though Ripple blockchain. Then funds are exchanged to the local currency.

This type of money transfer would be at least 70% cheaper than a regular bank transfer and would be executed almost instantly. This could make Ripple the most used currency for transfers between banks, therefore resulting in XRP mass adoption and increase in price over short to medium term.

The most recent news announced on the October 4, is that Japanese Bank Consortium launched an app that uses Ripple for instant domestic bank transfers. This is another great news for XRP, which is likely to attract millions of users worldwide.

And finally, Singapore-based Paycent has made an announcement that they will add XRP, making their uses able to withdraw fiat currency from the ATMs in the beginning of November.

Truly, a very positive fundamental news, but it seems that market is simply disregarding them completely. After Ripple has topped out on the September 21, investors started to dump the XRP coin. Today it is traded at $0.46 that is 40% cheaper than one month ago. Currently the downtrend still seems to be valid as price produces lower lows and lower highs.

Nevertheless, the support was found at $0.38, which is 50% Fibonacci retracement . After the bounce price went up, and bounced off the 61.8% Fibs at $0.53. At this time, XRP/USD is trading near the 200 Moving average, which is being rejected so far. This could result in the short-term growth. Although for the price to establish an uptrend, $0.53 resistance area must be broken.

As the trend is bearish , the probability of a price decline remains very high. If $0.43 support will be broken, XRP should go down to next support at $0.38. Break below $0.38, might send Ripple much lower, potentially towards the 13 August low; $0.24 support area .

In a nutshell, short term is down and Ripple might lose another 50% to the USD. However, investors might get attracted if $0.53 resistance area is broken. In this case trend should become bullish , sending price to the next resistance at $0.7.

You are absolutely right that 0.53 has to hold. If it does, which according to 1W is the most likely scenario, we are expecting 0.2710 in the near term:

Looks like Ripple is ready to make a short-term bounce:
xRapid is a instant-payment and instant-settlement solution. The only one available. No other project adresses instant-settlement, not JP Morgan Pool, nor SWIFT GPI, nor R3 Corda, etc. Thats the big, fat pro argument for XRP. Also xRapid is not only for banks. Ripple explicitly stated that they target remittence companies first - low value transactions - "the lower hanging fruit".

The domestic payment app "MoneyTap" from SBI Japan does not utilize XRP, due to obvious reasons. The most probable use case for XRP and xRapid is for exotic corridors where its hard to set up trusted and stable Nostro/Vostro relationships between banks. Of course XRP needs to have enough liquidity in these corridors, thats why exchange partnerships are important.
Nice detailed idea on XRPUSD. For our set up, we have identified the key resistance and support levels. Currently, price is approaching our first support at 0.4479 which is near the first support you've identified. It is horizontal overlap support, 61.8% Fibonacci extension , 50% and a 61.8% Fibonacci retracement. Stochastic is approaching resistance at 7.25% and we might see a corresponding bounce in price. If a corresponding bounce does occur, we may want to take a look at the 0.4955 resistance level. It is horizontal swing high resistance, 100% Fibonacci extension and a 61.8% Fibonacci retracement.
Please take a look at our idea and share with us what you think.
