  • The crypto is trading above both the 50-day moving average (green) as well as the 200-day moving average (blue). This indicates bullish sentiment throughout the recent months.

Key Levels To Watch

  • Ethereum Classic previously saw resistance near the $45 level, until earlier this week it was able to cross above the level.
  • Traders may want to see Ethereum Classic make a correction before thinking about an entry to avoid the chance of getting caught near the top.
  • The $45 level may hold as an area of support if the price were to fall to this level.
  • Previously the chart shows that when breaking resistance, the price has been unable to fall all the way to the previous resistance level. If history is to repeat itself again Ethereum Classic may not fall all the way back to the $45 level.
