Ethereum Classic Price Resistance
There was a decent recovery from the $8.70 low in ETC price against the US Dollar. The price traded above the $12.00 ad $13.00 resistance levels. However, sellers appeared near $13.15 and protected further gains. There was no proper close above $13.00 and the price started correcting lower. There was a break of the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $8.70 low to $13.13 high.
At the moment, the price is attempting a close below $13.50 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $8.70 low to $13.13 high is also at risk. It seems like there is a declining contracting triangle pattern with resistance at $11.50 forming on the hourly chart of ETC/USD. If the pair remains below the $12.00 handle the 100 hourly SMA, it could test the channel support near $11.00.
The channel support also coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $8.70 low to $13.13 high. A close below $11.00 would be a bearish sign and could push the price towards $10.00. On the upside, a close above $12.50 is required for sustained gains.
Hourly MACD – The MACD is almost flat with no major direction.
