XRP/USD technical outlook

On Wednesday and Thursday, the pair tested its 200-day SMA but failed to make a daily close above that critical resistance. During that time, the RSI indicator on the daily chart touched the 70 mark to trigger a technical correction. At the moment, the 200-day SMA is located at $0.2280 and if the pair successfully conquers that level, it could target $0.2460 (Mar. 7 high) ahead of $0.2500 (psychological level).

On the downside, the 100-day SMA seems to have formed a dynamic support at $0.2170. Below that level, $0.2085 (Apr. 30 low) could be seen as the next support before $0.2000 (psychological level).
