- ETC price remains trapped between two key averages on the 12H chart.
- Multiple resistance levels cap the upside amid neutral RSI.
- Bullish 50-SMA is the level to beat for the ETC buyers.
Ethereum Classic is fluctuating between gains and losses, lacking a clear directional for the second consecutive day this Sunday.
ETC/USD has entered a phase of consolidation following Friday’s impressive rebound from two-week troughs at $58.69. Saturday’s Doji candlestick seems to have watered down expectations of a continued recovery in ETC price.
However, a fresh bid wave seen across the crypto board over the last hours could help limit Ethereum’s downside.
Ethereum Classic price at coin flip levels
As observed on Ethereum Classic’s 12-hour chart, the price is wavering in a tight range around the $64 mark, at the time of writing.
The upward-sloping 50-simple moving average (SMA) at $62.87 is guarding the downside over the past 36 hours while the ETC bulls continue to face stiff resistance at the falling trendline resistance at $65.81.
A range breakout is waited for a sustained move in either direction. However, with the Relative Strength Index (RSI) flatlined at 50.00, investors are lacking a clear sense of direction.
That said, ETC price faces two healthy resistance levels in the horizontal 21-DMA at $65.20 and the abovementioned descending trendline.
Therefore, the path of least resistance appears to the downside for ETC traders.
Acceptance above the trendline hurdle could pave the way towards the $70 mark.
ETC/USD: 12-hour chart
On the flip side, a 12-hourly candlestick closing below the ETC price could accentuate the bearish pressures, calling for a test of the two-week lows.
The 200-DMA at $55.59 will challenge the bullish commitments should the sellers take over complete control.
