Ethereum Classic Price Resistances

A fresh downside wave was initiated from well above $37.00 in ETC price against the US dollar. The price declined and traded below a couple of important support levels such as $35.00 and $34.00. It even traded below the $33.25 support and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average. It traded as low as $31.36 and it is currently correcting higher.

It is currently testing the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $37.11 high to $31.36 low. On the upside, the broken support at $33.25 may act as a strong resistance. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $34.50 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. An intermediate resistance is around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $37.11 high to $31.36 low at $34.28. Therefore, it seems like there are many barriers on the upside starting with $33.25. The most important hurdle is near $34.50, which won’t be easy to break in the near term.
