Ripple is having a great time. Yesterday, BitMEX launched a new perpetual swap contract tied to XREP (XRPUSD) that moved its traded volume to the highest places and its price rocketing. But, maybe it's not just fireworks. Also last Tuesday, Ripple announced its partnership with International Money Express Inc (Intermex), a leading remittance services firm that is primarily focused in the Caribean and Latin America. "The partnership will enable Intermex to leverage RippleNet for faster, transparent cross-border remittance services between the United States and Mexico," - said Ripple's press release.

Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), which owns the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the Bitcoin Futures trading Bakkt, has made a formal offer to buy eBay for $30 billion, as reported by the Wall Street Journal.

 

Technical Analysis: Bitcoin

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has recovered above its $9,240 level, although it is still moving unconvincing. The MACD is turning up and is ready to make a bullish crossover, but its price still moves in the lower side of the Bollinger bands and below its 50-period SMA. The Key level to observe is $9,100 to the downside and $9,340 to the upside. The good news is the descending trendline has been broken, which might mean the bears don't have the strength to continue pushing it further down.

As we guessed yesterday, the triangular pattern was a continuation formation, and the triangle broke sharply to the upside. As we see on the chart, the price moves very close to the +3SD Bollinger line, which shows the strength of XRP's bullish momentum. As we can see, the price stopped its upward advance at $0.283 and is currently retracing. That is fine since it is overbought. So profit-taking and short-term sellers should drive it to the vicinity of the +1 SD. Thus, we expect a consolidation of the price in this area, possibly retracing close to the $0.274 level.
