When the price of a crypto asset trades in a narrow range, it is usually taken as an indication of low volatility. In addition, it often indicates indecision between buyers and sellers who cannot drive the price in either direction.

This leads to a period of consolidation where the market waits for a catalyst to drive the price in a certain direction.
