Ethereum Classic Price Decline
There was no upside move above $21.00 during the past few days in ETC price against the US dollar. The price started a downside move and traded below the $20.00 handle. The downside move was strong as the price even failed to hold the $18.00 support level. It is now trading well below the $18.00 pivot level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
The recent low was formed at $15.66 and it seems like sellers are here to stay. If there is a correction, the price may face sellers near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $21.73 high to $15.66 low. There is also a key connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $18.00 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The same trend line is near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $21.73 high to $15.66 low. Therefore, the $17.00 and $18.00 levels are seen as crucial barriers for buyers in the near term.
