Ethereum Classic Price Resistance
There was no stopping sellers as ETC price declined further and failed to hold the $10.00 handle against the US Dollar. The price traded towards the $9.50 support and formed a low at $9.52. Later, a recovery was initiated from the $9.52 low and the price was able to move above the $10.00 handle. It traded as high as $10.98 where it faced strong selling interest. Moreover, this week’s highlighted crucial bearish trend line with current resistance at $10.60 also prevented gains on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair.
The pair is once again under pressure and recently moved below the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $9.52 low to $10.98 high. However, the downside move is currently protected by the $10.20 support. The 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $9.52 low to $10.98 high is also preventing declines. There is a chance that the price might recover, but it will most likely face sellers near $10.60-80. Moreover, the trend line resistance at $10.60 is also close to the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Therefore, a break above the $10.60-80 resistance area won’t be easy. On the downside, the $10.20-10.00 support might continue to stop declines in the short term.
