XRP prices to push north?
The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has been wavering around the median 50-mark. It captures equal buying and selling pressure and range formation in the last few days.
Besides, the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) also wavered near its threshold, denoting fluctuating capital inflows. XRP’s short-term range ($0.50 – $0.53) could extend if the above two neutral readings persist in the next few hours/days.
A Fibonacci tool (yellow) was placed between August high and low. Notably, the $0.53 level aligned with the 38.2% Fib level. In addition, the $0.53 level was in confluence with the 50-EMA (Exponential Moving Average). So, the level could still be a crucial hurdle in the next couple of hours/days.
Any downward move could ease at the 23.6% Fib level and weekly bullish order block (OB) of $0.458 – $0.494 (cyan).

Funding rates improved
According to Coinalyze, XRP’s funding rates turned green on 25 August and have improved since then. In addition, the Open Interest (OI) rates increased from around $340 million to >$360 million at the time of publication.
The CVD (Cumulative Volume Delta) chalked a positive slope from 19 August, indicating buyers gained significant control from that day. However, the overhead hurdle of $0.53 remained problematic.
