Ethereum Classic Price Resistance

There was a major decline initiated in ETC price from the $19.50 high against the US Dollar. The price was under a lot of bearish pressure and broke the $18.00 and $17.00 support levels. A new weekly low was formed at $14.79 from where the price started a correction. It moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $19.60 high to $14.79 low once. However, the upside move was protected by a horizontal resistance at $16.50.

The stated $16.50 resistance was a support earlier and now preventing gains. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $16.50 on the hourly chart of ETC/USD. The 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $19.60 high to $14.79 low is also near $16.65. Therefore, it seems like there is a crucial resistance forming near $16.50.

It won’t be easy for buyers to push the price above $16.50 and $17.00. The 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned at $17.00 to act as a hurdle. On the downside, the $15.00 level is a decent support, followed by $14.80. Selling rallies towards $16.50-17.00 can be considered in the short term.
