ETC/USD daily and 4-hour chart

On the daily chart on the left, you can see where the wave high of 7.675 lies. This look like it could be the potential target for the bulls after the previous wave high on the 4-hour chart on the right was taken out on Friday.

The 7.00 psychological level has now been broken and the price came back and used the level as support on the 4-hour for a move higher. One of the key features on the chart is the Fib extension on the right-hand chart. The price could push to reach the 161.8% golden Fibonacci ratio and this confluences pretty close to the resistance target of the daily chart (left).

Looking at the indicators, the daily chart Relative Strength Index (RSI) shows there is some space for a move to the upside. However, the 4-hour RSI is in an oversold positive meaning there could be a short term correction before the underlying trend continues. 

The MACD on both charts are looking positive with the histogram above the zero-lines and the signal lines over the mid area on both charts. The trend is looking good overall but the daily chart will need a break of 7.675 for confirmation.
