Ethereum Classic Price Trend Line
Ethereum classic price recently traded as high as 0.00248BTC against Bitcoin after the recent resistance break. The price is currently correcting lower and already traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 0.00214BTC low to 0.00248BTC high. However, the price found support on the downside around a major confluence area.
The highlighted confluence area comprised of a couple of important things. First, there was a major bullish trend line formed on the hourly chart of ETC/BTC (data feed via Simplefx). Second, the 100 hourly simple moving average was positioned near it. Lastly, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 0.00214BTC low to 0.00248BTC high also provided support. So, we can say that there is a crucial support on the downside, which may continue to act as a barrier for sellers.
As long as the price is above it, there is a chance of an upside move. The price could test the recent high of 0.00248BTC and may even break the stated level for a new weekly high. Only a break and close below the 100 hourly SMA may negate the current bullish view.
