XRP/USD: Technical picture

This area has served as a strong resistance since April 29.

On the downside, if the price fails to settle above daily SMA100, the bearish pressure will increase with the next support created by $0.2100, followed by  38.2% Fibo retracement for the downside move from February 2020 high at $0.2030 and pivotal $0.2000.
