Ethereum Classic Price Support
There was no major recovery above $14.00 in ETC price against the US Dollar. During the past few sessions, there was a decline below the $13.00 support as well. A low was formed near $12.50 from where the price recovered and moved back above $13.00. It gained pace and was able to clear the $13.50 resistance along with the 100 hourly simple moving average.
During the upside, there was a break above a short-term bearish trend line at $13.75 on the hourly chart of ETC/USD. The price is now comfortably placed above the $13.50 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, it needs to gain momentum above $14.50 resistance if it has to move into the bullish zone. An initial support is around the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $12.50 low to $14.41 high. The $13.50 support is also near the broken trend line and the 100 hourly SMA.
Therefore, the $13.50 support is very important. As long as the price is above $13.50, it might attempt a break above $14.50. Under $13.50, the $13.00 support could be tested. Overall, ETC needs to gain momentum above $14.40 to remain in the bullish zone.
