ETC forming a massive reverse head-and-shoulder?

KRAKEN:ETCUSD   Ethereum Classic / U.S. Dollar
As we see on this 4 hour chart, ETC fell with BTC as it hit a big resistance the other day at around 41.75 (14.6% retracement, which also corresponds to the second last all-time high). The previous RHS (in blue) had precicely reached it's average target (38%*, which brought it to $37), then it tried to continue going up but it didn't have what it takes to break through the 14.6% resistance. Now, and this is still very hypothetical, it appears to be making a massive reverse head-and-shoulders (in green), in which the previous one fits snuggly in the head like a nice little fractal . As you can see, when it fell after hitting the resistance it rejoined the previous bear channel and was immediately projected out. I haven't traced the new bull channel because it's not fully formed yet, but it seems to be pretty steep. There's a big volume on the hypothetical right shoulder, which is unusual as normally the volume is bigger on the left shoulder, but let's give it a chance. Expect huge resistance again as it tries to go through 41.75 (bottom red dotted line), then through the neckline, then through the all-time high resistance of 47. But if it does succeed in going through all of those, and it's a very big IF at this point, it's a very clear path upwards. Don't get too excited if it goes through the neckline though, because it could very well reverse at the 47. But if it does go through all of that, then a rise to between 64 (38%, on average) and 68+ (1 in 4 to reach 45% or more) becomes very conceivable.

Happy trading!

Comment: The right shoulder seems to be well on it's way to being fully consolidated. Inside it, we find a smaller head and shoulder which just broke through the neckline an hour ago, at around 36.7. The average target for the small one would lead it to around $50, but once if it actually does reach this target, it will mean it will have broken out of the giant head and shoulders, for which the target would be $60. Let's see how this plays out but at the moment, it's very promising!
Comment: I've updated and recalibrated my analysis. You can view it here:

I hope you are correct...I see you updated and I am following along with you...we shall see. This is interesting...and we know about the news.
@svhill11, I hesitated for about 15 minutes about whether I should sell or not at 39, right before going to bed. I had sold early, earlier in the day, and now wanting to wake up having missed an opportunity, I decided to hold on to it. My regret is now higher than it would have been had it went up to 42 :P

Anyways, it seems to have hit support at 35... we'll see where this goes, I'm hoping it's following a small bull channel and that tonight was just a normal fluctuation in the run!
I can see it going down to between the 31.0 and 30.00. Then upwards...if for no other reason than the airdrop and that FOMO.
