ETC/USD: Technical picture
On the intraday charts, ETC/USD has been moving in a side-channel with bullish bias. The price settled above the middle lines of 1-hour and 30-min Bollinger Bands and moved towards the next critical resistance created by $7.00. This line is reinforced by SMA50 30-min located on approach; however, once it is out of the way, the recovery may gain traction with the next focus on $7.30 (SMA100 daily) and $7.40 (SMA50 1-hour). Notably, an upward-looking RSI on 1-hour chart implies further gains in the short run. Stronger resistance is created by SMA100 1-hour at $7.80 and psychological $8.00.
On the downside, the vital support is created by Sunday's low of $6.28. It is closely followed by SMA200 daily at $6.25. This area stopped the sell-off on the weekend and thus it should be regarded as a powerful backstop for ETC. If it is broken, the price will continue tumble towards psychological $6.00 and $5.30, which is the upper boundary of the [revious consolidation channel.
