Buyers made concerted efforts to sustain the price level above $200 but were repelled on three occasions. Nonetheless, on March 20, the bears had the upper hand as the altcoin was rejected and it fell to $192 support. 

The selling pressure persisted when price retested the $200 high. The market declined to $180 support and resumed fluctuation above the current support.
