The downward-looking RSI on the daily chart implies that the bearish pressure is here to stay with the ultimate downside goal at $0.1800 reinforced by daily SMA100 at $0.1780.

If it is passed, the upside momentum may gather pace and take the price towards psychological $0.2300 with the middle line of the daily Bollinger Band located right below this barrier.
