- Ripple price stable, reject lower lows
- IMF proposes a duo cash system with virtual currencies and cash in circulation
- Transaction volumes low, likely to spike as prices recover
Finally, IMF economists agree that there is a way governments can incorporate virtual currencies in their economies. Any assimilation would be an endorsement that would see prices of digital assets including XRP claw back losses.
Ripple Price Analysis
The global economy is yet to recover from the GFC of 2008-09. With trillions gone down the drain, Satoshi took advantage of this mayhem, releasing an alternative. Soon after, Ripple Inc rolled out a blockchain based system that banks can use to move value instantaneously in a trustless environment. Strides are visible.
As Ripple Inc try to wrestle out dominance from SWIFT and penetrate China, the IMF economists Ruchir Agarwal and Signe Krogstrup are floating an idea. That of creating a dual system of fiat and digital currencies allowing central banks to cut interest rates and even driving them to sub-zero levels. Here’s what they think:
“The proposal is for a central bank to divide the monetary base into two separate local currencies—cash and electronic money (e-money). E-money would be issued only electronically and would pay the policy rate of interest, and cash would have an exchange rate—the conversion rate—against e-money.”
After yesterday’s slide, XRP prices are back to positive territory, rejecting lower lows. In an effort versus result point of view, this is bullish, and as mentioned before, every dip is technically a buying opportunity. It is easy to see why.
From the charts, it is clear that bears did struggle to reverse gains of Jan 30. Behind their consistency were below average volumes paling in comparison with those of Jan 30’s 47 million versus 17 million. Considering our position, it is likely that the double bar pattern of Jan 29-30 will be confirmed.
That means rejection of lower lows and reversal of Feb 6 losses. After that, it will be a matter of time before XRP will surge past 34 cents triggering longs.
Volumes are low and marking trend resumption will be a spike in market participation driving prices above the 61.8 percent Fibonacci level. Ideally, volume accompanying this uptick should, first of all, exceed averages of 17 million and 47 million of Jan 30.
