Ethereum Classic Price Support
Ethereum classic price finally gained bids and managed to move from the 0.00182BTC support. There was a nice upside move, and the price traded above the 0.00188BTC resistance. During the upside move, the ETC buyers also managed to take the price above yesterday’s highlighted bearish trend line on the hourly chart of ETC/BTC (data feed via Simplefx). The price also climbed above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the drop from the 0.00206BTC high to 0.00182BTC low.
However, the upside move was stopped near another important resistance area at 0.00194BTC. It was a perfect rejection near the 50% Fib retracement level of the drop from the 0.00206BTC high to 0.00182BTC low. The worst part of the rejection is that the price is now back below the 100 hourly simple moving average. The recent rejection has brought back the ETC bears in control once again.
This is why we can say that the recent break was a false move in ETC/BTC. It looks like the price may once again test the all-important 0.00182BTC support. Let us see how the bulls react in that situation, and whether they defend the stated support one more time.
Hourly MACD – The MACD is currently in the bullish zone, but about to move into the bearish zone.
