Ethereum Classic Price Upside Hurdle
There was a slight upside move in ETC price towards $10.80-11.00 against the US Dollar. However, the upside move was protected by sellers near $10.80. It seems like buyers are struggling to gain traction above the $11.00 handle. Recently, a high was formed at $10.73 from where the price started a correction. It moved down and traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $9.54 low to $10.73 high.
There was even a close below the 100 hourly simple moving average at $10.50. On the upside, this week’s highlighted major bearish trend line with current resistance at $10.65 is active on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The pair needs to break the trend line resistance and gather pace above $11.00 to move back in the bullish zone. Above $11.00, the price could head towards the next resistance near $12.00.
On the downside, an immediate support is around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $9.54 low to $10.73 high at $10.15. Below $10.15, the $10.00 handle would act as a strong support and buy zone in the near term.
