Bollinger Bands

Ethereum’s price is moving between the channels with the lower channel limit acting as support and the middle average line acting as resistance. It can be seen that the channel is expanding with a positive momentum.

This indicates increased volatility with a positive sentiment, so the second-largest cryptocurrency’s price might go up, but it is still suggested to wait until the price closes a trading day above the resistance level.

Moving Average

When taking 9 period moving averages (blue) with 21 period moving averages (red), a bearish crossover is seen, but the price is moving above the 9 and 21 period moving averages. This indicates an uptrend but we see formation of a doji, which alternatively indicates indecision. So it is suggested to wait until the other factors turn more positive.
