In the last analysis, we discussed that ETC price could decline towards the $10.00 level against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair did move down recently and broke the $11.50 and $11.00 support levels. However, there was no test of the $10.00 support and the price traded as low as $10.67. Later, the price started an upside correction and moved above the $11.00 resistance.
There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $12.25 high to $10.67 low. More importantly, there was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance at $11.25 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The pair is currently trading near the $11.50 resistance zone and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It also represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $12.25 high to $10.67 low. Once there is a break and close above $11.50, the price is likely to climb towards the $12.00 resistance. Above this, the next major hurdle for buyers is near the $12.20 pivot level.
