• Ethereum Classic price is bouncing off the $27.48 to $28.19 support area, hinting at a potential trend reversal.
  • ETC could rally another 10% before facing another significant hurdle, extending from $31.17 to $32.08.
  • A daily candlestick close below $26.50 will create a lower low and invalidate the bullish outlook. 

Ethereum Classic price has started to turn around after weeks of downtrend and sell-off, but there is still more room to cover. Therefore, investors need to be careful as this ongoing spurt in bullish momentum could take a U-turn quickly. 

Ethereum Classic price needs more confirmation

Ethereum Classic price saw an explosive surge in buying pressure that propelled it by 243% in roughly a month. This massive bull rally was a byproduct of Ethereum’s upgrade via the Merge update. After an exponential move like this, ETC started to feel the holders’ selling pressure, which eventually led to a 41% correction that formed a swing low at $26.50.

Since this local bottom, Ethereum Classic price has flipped the immediate hurdle, extending from $27.48 to $28.19 into a support area. As ETC hovers above this barrier, investors need to be careful of the midpoint at $29.61, which will be a source of major headwinds for buyers.

If Ethereum Classic price overcomes this hurdle, it could attempt a 13% rally to fill the imbalance that extends up to $33.52. From the current position, this run-up would constitute a 17% gain and is likely where the upside is capped.

While things are looking up for Ethereum Classic price after the recent surge in bullish momentum, investors need to be careful of the hurdles that await. A sudden sell-off in Bitcoin price could translate to a similar outlook for ETC.

If Ethereum Classic price produces a lower low below $26.50, it will indicate a continuation of the bearish outlook and also invalidate the bullish reversal thesis. Such a development could see ETC retest the 62% Fibonacci retracement level at $25.70.
