Ethereum Classic Price New Low
ETC price not even made any attempt to correct higher yesterday versus the Bitcoin, and moved down. There was a close below 0.00100BTC, as it acted as a resistance and pushed the price down. The 100-hourly simple moving average acted as a perfect catalyst for a downside move. The price broke the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 0.00092BTC low to 0.00111BTC high, and currently looks set for extending losses.
At the moment, there is a contracting triangle pattern formed on the hourly chart (data feed via Simplefx) of ETC/BTC. It is contracting and reaching a break point. If there is a break below the triangle support, then the price may easily test the last low of 0.00092BTC. There is even a chance that the price might break the stated level and form a new low.
On the upside, an initial resistance is around the triangle trend line. Above it, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the 0.00111BTC high to 0.00094BTC low may provide offers. Any recovery from the current levels could be tough, as the price remains in a downtrend.
