Ethereum Classic Price Trend
There was a decent upside momentum forming above $30.00 in ETC price against the US Dollar. The price gained pace recently and it moved above the $35.00 and $40.00 resistance levels. The upside move was strong and the price was able to move well above $35.00 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. During the upside, there was a break above a key declining channel with resistance at $34.00 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair.
A high was formed at $41.48 from where the price started a downside correction. It traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $31.50 low to $41.48 high. However, the downside move was protected by the $37.50 support. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $31.50 low to $41.48 high prevented declines. It seems like the pair has completed a correction wave and it will most likely move above the $40.00 level again.
Above the $41.48 high, the price might even target $45.00 in the near term. On the downside, the $37.00 and $35.00 levels are decent supports.
