Ethereum Classic Daily Chart Analysis

  • Ethereum Classic is forming what technical traders call an ascending triangle pattern to a short-term resistance line near the $60 level.
  • The $80 level is a longer-term resistance line and the next resistance line if the $60 level gets broken. The higher low trendline is a place that has acted as support, but if broken, the next area of support may be found near the $40 level.
  • The crypto trades below both the 50-day moving average (green) and the 200-day moving average (blue), indicating the crypto is seeing a period of bearish sentiment.
  • Each of these moving averages may hold as a place of resistance in the future.
  • The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has moved sideways the past few weeks and sits at 51. This shows the buying and selling pressure has remained relatively equal in the crypto.
