Ether will trade between $1,220 and $1,350

The price of Ethereum (ETH) is trading in the downtrend zone and below the 21-day line SMA. The largest altcoin is trading above the $1,300 support, which allows for a possible upward movement.

The upward movement was slowed down by the 21-day line SMA. Moreover, the price movement is stagnant due to the presence of indecisive small-body doji candles. Today, buyers are trying to push the altcoin above the 21-day line SMA. The altcoin will rise to the 50-day line SMA if it crosses the 21-day line SMA. The movement within the trading range will continue if the altcoin is rejected at the recent high. In other words, Ether will trade between $1,220 and $1,350.
