Over the last week, the XRP price charted a 15% uptick from the $0.45 level and has picked up the pace and is now oscillating near the $0.53 mark at press time.
As a new week began, XRP was among the top gainers on the daily as well as weekly charts, rallying 21.40% over the past 7 days. Despite macro fears regarding Federal Reserve policies, optimism stemming from the SEC vs Ripple case provided much-needed relief to the XRP price.

Nonetheless, a strong positive sentiment was missing from the scene, indicative of the pullback seen in the weighted social sentiment on XRP.
From a technical point of view, XRP’s daily RSI was in the overbought region, indicative of higher buying pressure from retail traders. However, mellowed-down trade volumes presented some skepticism among buyers as social euphoria still lacked.
Furthermore, the funding rate heading into the positive territory indicates a bullish bias in the futures market, showing higher hopes for the XRP price in the near future.

Higher MVRV values indicate a larger degree of unrealized profit in the market and increase the probability that investors will sell coins to lock in profits.
While MVRV lows made on the short-term and long-term show that the $0.31 level has acted as a local bottom, it still cannot be concluded that XRP’s long-term bottom is in.
