However, if buyers can overcome this level, resistances of $85 and $90 may come into play in the long run. Meanwhile, a surge of volatility may likely come to focus as the technical indicator Relative Strength Index (14) may cross below 50-level, suggesting a further drop in prices within the market.
ETC/BTC Market: ETC Price May Continue to Move Sideways
Against Bitcoin, Ethereum Classic is moving sideways over the past weeks as the price action moves below the 9-day and 21-day moving averages. Now, ETC/BTC appeared non-volatile as the price aims to focus on the bearish movement, signaling a possible surge in the market. As it is now, the ETC price is likely to go down to the support level of 1250 SAT and below if the bulls failed to hold the current support.
Nevertheless, the buyers may regroup with a potential break above the moving averages and if such a scenario occurs, the Ethereum Classic price may go as high as 1550 SAT and above. On the long-term outlook, ETC/BTC keeps ranging as a rebound is possible if the current market value can act strong. Meanwhile, the Relative Strength Index (14) is facing down, suggesting downward movement.
