Ethereum Classic Price Trend
Recently, we saw a decline in ETC price below the $26.00 level against the US dollar. The price traded as low as $25.47 before it started an upside recovery. There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $30.08 high to $25.47 low. The upside move was positive since the price was able to move above the $26.00 level.
There was even a break above a crucial bearish trend line with resistance at $27.40 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The pair traded above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $30.08 high to $25.47 low. Moreover, there was a break above the $28.00 level, but the pair was not able to gain momentum. The upside move was capped by the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $30.08 high to $25.47 low. It seems like the $28.00-28.20 level is acting as a strong barrier for buyers.
Once there a break above $28.20, the pair could accelerate above $30.00. On the downside, an initial support is around the $27.20 level. However, the most important supports sits around the $25.00 level.
