It was a sell ride for ETC price recently as it followed ETH and BTC and moved below $15.00 against the US Dollar. The price declined heavily before finding support at $12.75. Buyers were able to defend the mentioned level, and the price recovered well. The upside move was decent, as the price was above the close above $13.00. During the upside move, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance at $14.00 on the hourly chart of ETC/USD.
It has opened the doors for more gains above $14 in the near term. The price has breached the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $19.75 high to $12.74 low.
