Ethereum Classic Price Support

After trading as low as $11.88, ETC price started an upside move against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair traded above the $12.00 and $12.20 resistance levels. The price also traded above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $13.47 high to $11.88 low. However, the upside move was capped by the $12.70 level and the price dropped back towards the $12.00-12.20 support.

Later, the price formed a support base near $12.00 and moved higher. It settled above the $12.50 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, there was a break above a contracting triangle with resistance at $12.58 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The pair is currently trading near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $13.47 high to $11.88 low. Once there is a proper close above the $12.75 and $12.80 levels, the price is likely to accelerate above the $13.00 level. If ETC buyers gain control, the price may well break the $13.10 resistance and revisit the $13.40 zone.
