Ethereum Classic Price Support
The past few sessions were super bullish as ETC price surged from the $18.00 swing low against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair traded higher and broke the $20.00 barrier to move into a bullish zone. It even cleared sell offers near $21.00 and traded towards $22.00. A high was formed at $21.91, and it seems like the price remains in a solid uptrend above $20.00.
An initial support is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $19.87 low to $21.91 high. More importantly, there are two bullish trend lines forming with support at $21.00 and $20.50 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. Below the first trend line, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $19.87 low to $21.91 high is at $20.89. The mentioned $20.90-21.00 area is a significant support since it was a resistance earlier. If the price corrects lower from the current levels, the $20.90-21.00 area is likely to act as a decent buy zone.
The chart points that the price will most likely accelerate gains above $21.91. A break above the $22.00 level could clear the path for an acceleration towards the $25.00 level. An intermediate resistance is close to $23.60.
