Ethereum Classic Price Support
There was a nice upside move in ETC price above the $38.00 level recently against the US Dollar. However, the price failed to stay in the bullish zone, moved down and broke the $37.00 and $35.00 support levels. The decline was such that the price moved below the $34.00 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It is now showing a few bearish signs since it broke the $32.00 level and tested the $30.00 handle.
During the downside, there was a break below a connecting bullish trend line with support at $34.50 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The pair recovered later and is currently moving around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $39.15 high to $30.46 low. However, the broken support at $34.00 may now act as a resistance along with the 100 hourly SMA. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $39.15 high to $30.46 low is also around $34.50.
Therefore, the $34.00-34.50 level is a major resistance area on the upside. On the downside, the pair needs to stay above the $30.00 level to avoid any more declines in the near term.
