Ethereum Classic Price New Low
Ethereum classic price faced offers lately, and finally showed swing moves against the Bitcoin. There was a downside move, as the ETC bulls failed to take the price higher. There was a minor upside move, but yesterday’s highlighted new small bearish trend line on the hourly chart of ETC/BTC (data feed via Simplefx) prevented gains. Moreover, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the drop from the 0.00194BTC high to 0.00180BTC acted as a resistance.
The price moved down, and the most important point was the fact that there was a break below 0.00180BTC. So, it can ignite further declines in the near term. The price recently traded as low as 0.00174BTC, and looks set for a test of 0.00170BTC. If there is a correction, then the same trend line may act as a hurdle for the bulls. Moreover, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the leg lower from the 0.00194BTC high to 0.00174BTC low may also act as a barrier.
It looks like there are enough reasons for the sellers to take the price further lower. Any recovery can be seen as a selling opportunity. The broken support area at 0.00180-182BTC may now act as a resistance in the near term.
