Ethereum Classic Price Resistance
There was a start of a new downside reaction from the $30.50 swing high in ETC price against the US Dollar. The price moved down and broke a few important support levels such as $30.00 and $28.00. It traded close to the $24.00 level and formed a lot at $24.01. It is currently correcting higher and has already moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $30.00 high to $24.01 low.
At the moment, the price is facing resistance near the $27.00 level. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $30.00 high to $24.01 low is acting as a resistance. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $27.50 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The trend line resistance is around the 100 hourly simple moving average at $27.80. An intermediate resistance is around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $30.00 high to $24.01 low at $26.98.
Therefore, there are many hurdles on the upside starting with $27.00. As long as the price is below $27.00, it might struggle. On the downside, the $24.00 level is a decent support. Below $24.00, the next major support is around $22.00.
