Ethereum classic price is in a bearish trend against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETC/USD has to surpass the $16.60 resistance to start a decent recovery.

Ethereum Classic Price Decline

There were heavy losses this week in ETC price as it moved below the $17.00 support against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair even broke the $16.00 support and settled well below the 100 hourly simple moving average. It traded as low as $15.67 and is currently struggling to recover. There was a minor upside move, but buyers faced hurdles near $16.60-70. Moreover, there was no close above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $18.80 high to $15.67 low.

More importantly, there is a major bearish trend line formed with resistance near $16.35 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The pair is slowly moving lower and is holding the $16.00 support area. On the upside, a break above the trend line and $16.40 resistance could clear the path for a decent recovery. However, there is also a crucial resistance and a pivot zone at $16.60-70. The price must break the stated pivot zone to stage a comeback above the $17.00 level.
