Analyzing the current growth of Ethereum Classic (ETC), it was rather a pump than a start of the bullish trend. The trading volume was high, however, it could not fix itself and started to gradually decline. The long wick of the bearish candle also confirms the inability of bulls to push the rate higher. Summing up, the support at $8.40 is supposed to be achieved until the end of January. 

Ethereum Classic is trading at $9.40 at press time.


Our earlier Bitcoin SV price forecast has justified itself as the rate went down even below the expected mark at $320.

On the 4H chart, Bitcoin SV (BSV) is still facing a correction after a sharp growth to $450. According to the technical analysis, the decline has not ended yet as the MACD indicator is still bearish. What is more, the selling trading volume keeps increasing. All in all, the descending channel is relevant until the price reaches $200 and it might happen in the last days of the current month.

Bitcoin SV is trading at $268 at press time.
