Ethereum Classic Price Resistance

There was an increase in bearish pressure on ETC price below $11.00 against the US Dollar. The price declined and traded as low as $9.85 where it found support and later started a recovery. It moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $13.20 high to $9.85 low. There was even a move above the $10.50 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average, which is a positive sign.

However, buyers are struggling to take the price above the $11.00 level. There is a short-term contracting triangle pattern forming with resistance at $10.80 on the hourly chart of ETC/USD. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $13.20 high to $9.85 low is near $11.10. The pair has to break the $10.80 and $11.00 resistance to gain momentum. The next stop could be the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $13.20 high to $9.85 low at $11.50.

On the downside, an initial support is at $10.50 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. If the pair fails to hold the $10.50 support, there is a risk of a downside break towards $10.00 in the near term.

Hourly MACD – The MACD is now showing any major signs of an upside break.

Hourly RSI – The RSI is just around the 50 level.

Major Support Level – $10.50
