Ethereum Classic Price Trend

There was a bullish bias formed above the $15.00 level in ETC price against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair formed a solid support base at $15.00 and started a key upside move. It traded higher and cleared a few important hurdles such as $16.00 and $16.50. More importantly, there was a close above the $16.50 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average, which cleared the path for more gains.

As a result, the price moved above the $17.00 resistance area. Later, there was break above a major connecting resistance trend line at $17.40 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The pair traded further higher towards the $18.00 level. A high was formed at $17.97 before the price started a downside correction. It seems like the price may tested the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last upside wave from the $15.03 low to $17.97 high. The $17.40 support is also close to the broken trend line. Therefore, the $17.40-50 area could act as a strong buy zone.
