With the larger market sentiment being moderately bearish, most altcoins either continued to consolidate or plunged due to their bearishness. Ethereum Classic [ETC] and Bitcoin SV [BSV] saw sideways price movement with short candlesticks which highlighted that the market action was slow. On the contrary, Verge [XVG] saw slight gains and might see a trend reversal going forward.
Even though Ethereum Classic got its new Mantis update and Bitcoin SV saw the release of SPV channels CE v1.1.0 introducing new mobile functionalities, the alts’ prices didn’t see any major ups and downs. Verge though saw an almost 20% price rally in the last two days.
Ethereum Classic [ETC] was trading at $57.9 at press time and oscillated in close proximity to the support level at $22.5. Since June 1, the asset’s price has fallen by almost 20% while its ROI over the past 30 days, v. USD, was down by almost 32%.
On a four-hour chart, the Bollinger Bands for the altcoin depicted a steady parallel movement indicating that market action was slow. The Awesome Oscillator was under the zero-line and with the appearance of red bars, it further suggested that bearish momentum was creeping in for ETC.
Even though the Relative Strength Index for the alt highlighted that it was in the neutral zone, oscillating between 35-50, selling pressure was pushing in, with the same evidenced by the slightly downward trajectory of the indicator. However, at press time, the RSI remained constantly below the 45-mark. Price action for ETC has been largely dormant post the price rally that took place towards the end of May.
Bitcoin SV [BSV]
Bitcoin SV, after the May 19 price fall, noted restricted price movement between the $152.1 support and $191.5 resistance levels. At press time, the asset ranked 31st on CoinMarketCap, was down 64.51% from its all-time high.

Furthermore, the Parabolic SAR’s dotted lines below the candlesticks pointed to a bullish momentum creeping in. This corresponded with the Chaikin Money Flow’s slight upward trend at press time which suggested that cash inflow pressure was increasing. The CMF had touched zero at press time and further inflows could move the price north.

Further, the MACD and Signal lines underwent a bullish crossover on June 10 and moved close to each other again. This could point to an upcoming trend reversal in the near future.
