Ethereum Classic Price Trend

This week, there was a nice upside move initiated from the $16.00 swing low in ETC price against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair traded above the $16.50 and $17.00 resistance levels to move into a bullish zone. It traded as high as $17.56 and is currently correcting lower. The price broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $16.51 low to $17.56 high.

However, there are many supports on the downside above the $16.50 level. An initial support sits around the $17.00 level. Below this, the price may test the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $16.51 low to $17.56 high.

The trend line support and the $16.85 area is significant since it coincides with the previous resistance area.
