The signals of the indicators vary:
- The price has fixed above 50 MA and 200 MA, which indicates the bullish sentiment;
- The MACD histogram is in the negative zone and continues to decline, which gives a signal to sell.

Trading recommendations

If the price fixes below the level of 1275.00, the correction of the ETH/USD quotations is expected. The closest target for profit taking is the support level of 1150.00. The movement is tending to 50.0%-61.8% of the correction zones.

Alternative option. If the price fixes above the key resistance of 1400.00, it is necessary to consider buying ETH/USD. The target level of movement is 1500.00-1600.00.

When following the positions, we recommend using a trailing stop.
