Ethereum Classic Price Upside Move
This past week we saw how Ethereum classic price was struggling. It was under a lot of bearish pressure, which took the price below the 0.00150BTC against the Bitcoin. However, the price later managed to recover, and posted good gains. There was a nice upside drift taking the price above 0.00180BTC. There was a new high formed at 0.00186BTC, as there was a break above a bearish trend line on the hourly chart of ETC/BTC (data feed via Simplefx. The price also closed above the 100 hourly simple moving average to encourage the bulls.
However, the bears appeared then and prevented any additional gains. The price corrected lower and traded below the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the wave from the 0.00148BTC low to 0.00186BTC high. The price also moved below the 100 hourly simple moving average, but later managed to find support near 0.00162BTC.
The stated level also represents the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the wave from the 0.00148BTC low to 0.00186BTC high. So, there is a chance that the price may bounce back in the short term. It would be interesting to see whether the price challenges 0.00180BTC once again or not since it holds a lot of importance.
