Over the past 3 days, Ethereum Classic has maintained sideways movement on the charts between the $5.69-$5.82 range, keeping price volatility in the market to a minimum. A 1.12 percent dip over the last 24-hours suggested its close proximity to its resistance level at $5.68. ETC had a market cap of $668.55 million, at the time of writing, with a below-par trading volume of $116.31 million over the past 24-hours.
The Relative Strength Index and the MACD also pointed to a relatively neutral trend in the market. While the MACD line and Signal line were mediating at close range, the RSI noted neutrality between ETC’s buying and selling pressure.
Ethereum Classic has gained significant support lately with HIVE OS recently adding mining support for its mining pool.

The 12th ranked cryptocurrency appeared to maintain oscillation between the trendlines of a descending triangle, suggestive of a bullish breakout. The bullish narrative was supported by a rise registered by the Relative Strength Index or RSI, which indicated higher buying pressure.
However, the Parabolic SAR continued to raise bearish concerns over the near-term as the dotted markers appeared over the candles.
