Ethereum Classic Price Support
This past week, there was a sharp rise in ETC price towards $24.00 against the US Dollar. The price broke the $20.00 and $22.00 resistance levels to trade close to the $24.00 level. It traded as high as $24.01 before facing sellers and starting a downside correction. The price corrected lower and moved below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $15.08 low to $24.01 high.
However, the downside correction was strong and the price declined below $21.00. There was even a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $15.08 low to $24.01 high. On the downside, there is a major bullish trend line forming with support at $19.00 on the hourly chart of ETC/USD. The trend line support near $19.00 holds a lot of importance since the 100 hourly simple moving average is also near it.
Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $15.08 low to $24.01 high is near $18.48. Therefore, we can say that there are many important supports on the downside near $19.00-18.50. As long as the price is above the trend line support at $19.00, it might resume its uptrend.
