Ethereum Classic Price Downside Move
Ethereum classic price tested the 0.00245-250BTC resistance once again but failed to break it. The stated level was a support earlier and now it is acting as a resistance of the ETC buyers. It may continue to act as a major barrier for them. However, if ETC price has to move higher, then it has to clear the resistance. The price at the moment is correcting lower. It already broke the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 0.00214BTC low to 0.00248BTC high.
There is now a minor bearish trend line formed on the hourly chart of ETC/BTC (data feed via Simplefx). It is acting as a hurdle for the bulls and preventing an upside move. A break above the trend line is needed for a move back towards the last high of 0.00248BTC. On the downside, there is a major support at 0.00225BTC. It is also coinciding with the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 0.00214BTC low to 0.00248BTC high.
So, we can say that the price is stuck between a major support and a trend line resistance. A break is needed for the next move.
