ETC price prediction
Ethereum Classic is trading at its highest level since mid-September. Earlier in Wednesday’s session, the crypto rose to 56.01 before pulling back. At the time of writing, it was up by 2.09% at 55.49.
Since the beginning of the month, it has surged by 18.94%. It has been trading within a range of between 50.40 and 55.21 since earlier in the month.
On a two-hour chart, ETC price is trading above the 25 and 50-day exponential moving averages. Both the fundamentals and technical point to further gains. However, one cannot dismiss the heightened volatility that characterizes the crypto market.
In the short term, I expect ETC price to hover around the psychological level of 55.00. if it pulls back further, the support level will likely be along the 25-day EMA at 53.37. On the upside, the bulls’ next target will be at the resistance level of 57.50.
