During the past few sessions, there was a solid rise in ETC price from the $12.40 low against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair surged higher and broke the $13.00 and $13.80 resistance levels. There was even a break above the $14.00 level and the price traded as high as $14.53. Later, the price started a downside correction and traded below the $14.00 level.
There was also a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $13.01 low to $14.53 high. However, declines were well protected near the $13.50 level, which acted as a support earlier as well. Additionally, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $13.01 low to $14.53 high stopped declines. More importantly, there is a crucial bullish trend line formed with support at $13.55 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The pair is currently consolidating above the $13.50 support. As long as the price is above the trend line and the $13.50 support, it could resume its upside move.
The chart suggests that ETC price is placed nicely in an uptrend from the $12.40 low. If the $13.50 support holds, it could bounce back above the $14.00 level in the near term. If not, there is a risk of an extended correction towards the $13.20 level.
