Bitcoin surged from $26k to $31k over the past ten days as sentiment shifted bullish following the spot ETF applications from Blackrock. The most recent amended application came from ARK Invest – can this news bring another surge in BTC prices?
The Fibonacci retracement level has served as solid support for ETCThe breakout past the $15.55 resistance last week occurred on heightened trading volume. The Ethereum Classic’s move past $17 saw this volume increase massively. However, in the past four days the bullish momentum has begun to waver.
This showed that a pullback was around the corner. A set of Fibonacci retracement levels were plotted based on the rally. It showed the 50% and 61.8% retracement levels at $17.06 and $16.43. Hence, these are the short-term support levels ETC bulls can watch out for.
The RSI was at 48, showing neutral momentum. The CMF climbed past +0.05 to indicate rising capital flow into the ETC market. If Bitcoin can also climb back above the $31k mark, Ethereum Classic would likely follow. The 23.6% extension level at $21 presented a viable target. Meanwhile, invalidation would occur upon a drop below the $16.43 mark.

The spot CVD was also in a downtrend. If these metrics were flipped into an upward trend and ETC prices surged as well, it would be a strong sign of bullish intent.
