Ethereum Classic Price Analysis
This past week, there was a decent recovery above $ 4.80 in ETC price against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair traded above the $ 5.00 and $ 5.20 resistance levels. A high was formed at $ 5.27 and later the price started a fresh decline. It traded lower sharply and broke the $ 5.00 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There was even a break below the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $ 4.40 low to $ 5.27 high.
Moreover, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support at $ 4.60 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The pair is currently trading near the $ 4.40 low, which is acting as a support. If the price continues to move down, it could test the $ 4.20 support. It coincides with the 1.236 Fib extension level of the last wave from the $ 4.40 low to $ 5.27 high. However, the key support is near the $ 4.00-4.05 zone where buyers are likely to emerge. If the price corrects higher, the previous supports at $ 4.50 and $ 4.75 are likely to prevent gains.
The chart suggests that ETC price is back in a bearish zone with a close below $ 5.00 and 100 SMA. The next stop for sellers could be either $ 4.20 or $ 4.05.
