ETC on monthly timeframe is actually showing nothing special, just a large wick, and a consolidation which can turn out to be re accumulation or distribution depending which side it shows its interest. Jumping to the weekly, the price seems to be doing an Elliot corrective move which may turn out the next move to the upside. Moving to the daily time frame, as always price has much to show on this time frame, as this shows recent price action.
Price once it made its all-time high, started breaking structure to the downside. Within this move on the 18th of May 2021, the price moved very aggressively to the downside, which shows the involvement of bigger institutions.
This created a drop base drop pattern from where the price may react in the future sooner or later. Afterwards ETC continued pushing down until 22nd of June 2021, when price didn’t broke structure aggressively, rather did a stop hunt of previous low, which resulted in a shift in market structure. after wards price did moved efficiently to the upside leaving no gaps in the way, but the origin of this move could have been considered as an order block, as this was the candle which originated this move which broke the previous structure.
This move lasted below the previously mentioned supply zone and made a double top and started to fell again. Now, this is more like a bread and butter setup, as just before tapping a supply zone or orderblock, market engineers liquidity. the price fell down, tapped in the below orderblock, and showed a reaction. and soon after the reaction, the price has now been in consolidation.
This consolidation, it is likely that ETC on a bigger scale will continue to the upside, but there’s also a probability that an AMD pattern might unfold in here as just below there’s an unmitigated zone which might get mitigated with a manipulation phase of AMD. The original distribution or expansion phase can be expected to the upside that might clear liquidity, fill the imbalance, and tap in the supply zone eventually
