Demand zones: $150, $100, $50

ETH is ranging in the medium-term outlook. Strong bullish pressure continued to move the cryptocurrency up, to $299.01 in the supply area. Momentum was temporally lost due to the formation of bearish spinning top that signals the bears’ arrival. Ethereum’s price was down to $281.72 in the demand area before the market closed yesterday.

The 4-hour opening candle was bullish at $286.85 and the price went back up at $302.98 in the supply area within the range. This is above the 10-day EMA. The stochastic oscillator is in the overbought region at 74% and its signal is parallel which is a reflection of the ranging scenario.

The cryptocurrency is ranging and trading between $310.00 in the upper supply area and $260.00 in the lower demand area of the range. Before entering a position traders should exercise patience to wait for a breakout or breakdown.
