- The price has crossed 200 MA;
- The MACD histogram is located in the negative zone.

It is advisable to open positions from the key levels.

Trading recommendations

If the price fixes above the round level of 17.000, it is necessary to look for entry points to the market to open long positions. The closest target for profit taking is a mark of 18.500. The movement is tending to monthly highs (21.000).

Alternative option. If the price fixes below the level of 15.700, further decline in the ETC/USD quotes is expected. The movement is tending to 14.500-13.500.

When following the positions, one should use a trailing stop.
