The cryptocurrency market is trading sideways today as some coins are going up, while the rates of others are falling.
Bitcoin (BTC) is the only coin from the list today that is falling, declining by 0.90%.
On the daily chart, nothing has changed as the price keeps trading in a wide channel. In addition, the volume is going down, which means that none of the sides has accumulated enough power for a sharp move. In this case, trading in the range of $38,000-$40,000 is the more likely price action until the end of the week.
Bitcoin is trading at $38,279 at press time.
Unlike Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) is showing power, rising by 0.19% since yesterday.
Despite slight growth, Ethereum (ETH) is still trading below the vital $3,000 mark. If today's candle fixes near $2,780, there is a high possibility to expect a breakout of the red line soon, followed by a continued price drop.
Ethereum is trading at $2,823 at press time.
XRP is the biggest gainer from the list today, rising by 0.70%.
XRP remains bearish despite the rise, approaching the $0.5461 level. If bears' pressure continues, the decline may lead to a further decrease to the zone around $0.55 until mid-May.
XRP is trading at $0.6150 at press time.
