Ethereum Classic Price Upside Hurdle
ETC price attempted a minor upside move yesterday versus Bitcoin, and then declined. There was a break below the 0.00120BTC support, which is a bearish sign. A new low was formed at 0.0016BTC. I was looking for a test of 0.0015BTC yesterday, and the price almost tested it. ETC is currently finding buyers and attempting to trade higher in the short term.
However, there is a crucial resistance formed on the upside around 0.00121BTC, which is acting as a hurdle for an upside move. The main reason for it acting as a resistance is this week’s highlighted bearish trend line on the hourly chart of ETC/BTC (data feed via Simplefx). It is acting as a barrier along with the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 0.00136BTC high to 0.0016BTC low.
So, if there is a break above the highlighted resistance area, it may open the doors for a recovery. The next resistance on the upside could be around the 100 hourly simple moving average. The stated SMA is also aligned with the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 0.00136BTC high to 0.0016BTC low. So, it can be considered as a sell area at 0.00126BTC.
