Ethereum Classic Price Resistance
After a major upside move above the $45.00 level, ETC price faced offers against the US dollar. The price traded as high as $47.29 and later started a downside move. It traded below a few key support levels such as $45.00 and $40.00. There was a break below the $38.00 pivot and the price settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average. The recent low formed was $35.96 and the price is currently consolidating losses.
An initial resistance on the upside is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $47.29 high to $35.96 low. There is also a declining channel forming with resistance at $40.50 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The pair may correct higher towards $40.00 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, it is likely to face a lot of resistances around $40.00-40.50. The 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $47.29 high to $35.96 low is also at $40.22 to act as a hurdle.
It won’t be easy for ETC buyers to break the $40.00-40.50 resistance levels. On the downside, the price may decline further towards the $34.00 and $32.00 support levels in the near term.
