The second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, Ethereum (ETH), has enjoyed a strong performance and touched a seven-month peak around $273 earlier in the session before drifting back to $260. There is a gap on the charts going back to mid-August 2018 between $330 and $343 which is likely the next target for bulls to fill if the market is to continue to press higher. Ethereum trades above all three moving averages, a bullish set-up, although the CCI indicator is currently flashing an overbought signal which needs to be monitored closely.
