Technically, Ether is trading sideways on W1, but the traders should remain wary. With the MACD converging and the Stochastic forming a golden cross, the price may correct upwards once any drivers appear. The correction targets are likely to be at 23.60%, or $257.50, and 38.20%, or $366.60. The overall bearish trend, meanwhile, is heading towards the major long term support at $10, but this level may be taken over only once the fractal at $80.86 gets broken out.

On D1, one can watch the upside correction continuing, while it is more similar to a consolidation move or a flat trend. The current channel is limited by $119.60 and $198. The MACD slowed down near 0 but is still going up, thus confirming the upside movement.

On H4, the midterm trend is still ascending. The midterm channel support was tested, and then the price bounced and broke out the short term descending channel resistance, heading towards $148.70. The Stochastic may form a black cross after reaching the overbought territory, which may signal the price going down to the support at $131.75.

There has not been much news for Ether lately. TrustVault has launched an ETH wallet in App Store. It is open for UK users only, but more countries will be supported later.

The new Weiss Ratings list puts XRP on the first place, while EOS is the second and BTC, the third. Both the XRP and the EOS got an A grade, the latter becoming more popular because of the New Internet. The BTC, meanwhile, is reported to become a good savings vehicle in the future. Ether got A- and is only number four.

The investors think no crypto is worthy of A, through, the best grade for EOS, BTC, XRP, and BNB being В-. This is based on the risk-reward ratio, which shows that the risk component is still prevailing in the market sentiment.

Meanwhile, Yanoo Japan is launching crypto trading on Taotao, which is scheduled to start working in a month. The exchange will first offer BTC and ETH contracts, but then other cryptos will be added. Trading on margin will be also available, which is sure to attract more people to the exchange.

Taotao will use all the utmost security measures, which seems logical after Coincheck attacks.
