If the level of average prices continues to keep the pair in a local downtrend, then this week the bears can roll back the Bitcoin price to the $42,447 support level.

XRP/USD chart by TradingView
Buyers formed a rather strong bullish momentum tonight, which allowed the pair to test the level of $0.90. On the daily time frame, the Stoch RSI indicator lines entered the overbought zone. But if the bulls manage to continue to rise, the pair might test the resistance of $0.96.
On the other hand, in the near future, the indicator lines should leave the overbought zone. Therefore, one can expect a return below the support of $0.80.
XRP is trading at $0.8231 at press time.
Cardano (ADA) is the biggest loser from the list, falling by 6.33%.

ADA is trading at $1.221 at press time.
Binance Coin (BNB) is also following the decline of Cardano (ADA), going down by 5% since yesterday.

BNB is trading at $513.80 at press time.
