Ethereum Classic Price Trend
There was a solid price action above the $18.00 pivot level in ETC price against the US dollar. After forming a low at $17.80, the price moved higher and broke the $19.00 and $20.00 resistance levels. It even traded above the $21.00 level and formed a high near $21.52. Later, a downside correction was initiated and the price moved below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $17.87 low to $21.52 high.
However, the downside move was well supported above the $19.00 level. The price tested the $19.00-19.20 support area and bounced. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $17.87 low to $21.52 high also acted as a support. On the downside, there is a major bullish trend line forming with support at $19.50 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. As long as the pair is above the trend line and the $19.00 support, it remains in an uptrend.
On the upside, the price may retest the $21.50 resistance. However, a break above the $21.50 resistance is needed for a push towards the $25.00 level. The overall price structure is bullish as long as the trend line and support at $19.00 are intact.
