Ethereum Classic Trend
Ethereum Classic price ETC enjoyed a decent upside ride against Bitcoin recently, as the bulls managed to clear a couple of important resistance levels. The most important point is that the price broke the 100 and 200 simple moving average on the 30-mins chart before surging as high as 0.0030BTC.
Currently, there is a contracting triangle pattern formed on the 30-min charts of ETC/BTC, which may act as a catalyst for the next move. In my view, it is a bullish pattern and may open the doors for more gains soon if the ETC bulls remain in action. The price already corrected once and tested the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the 0.0023BTC to 0.0030BTC.
So, it could be that the price has already completed a correction pattern, and may look to trade higher in the near term. A break above the triangle resistance area might open the doors for a break above the 0.0030BTC. The technical indicators are positive and suggesting more gains. If at all the bears step in and bulls fail, then a break of the triangle support can take the price towards the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the 0.0023BTC to 0.0030BTC.
