On March 12, Ripple (XRP) dropped to a low of $0.12 and resumed consolidation. The cryptocurrency is in a sideways trend between the levels of $0.12 and $0.17. The bears have earlier taken price to the lower price range but pulled back because of rejection at the support. In the same manner, the bulls tested the upper price range and were resisted.
XRP is now trading at $0.15 between the lower price range of $0.12 and the upper price range of $0.17. Nonetheless, it is unlikely if the selling pressure will resume as the market was oversold at the $0.12 support. The bulls emerge to push Ripple to the high of $0. 15. On the upside, if the bulls break above $0.17 resistance, the coin will reach a high of $0.20. However, where the overhead resistance remains unbroken the sideways trend will continue.
