Ethereum Classic Price Resistance

There was a downside extension in ETC price below the $11.00 support area against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair declined below the $10.50 and $10.25 support levels. It traded as low as $10.15 before buyers appeared. Later, there was an upside correction and the price moved back above $10.50. There was also a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $11.49 high to $10.15 low.

However, the upside move was capped by the $11.00 resistance zone. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $11.49 high to $10.15 low stopped the upside move. There is also a declining channel in place with resistance at $11.00 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. Above the channel resistance, the 100 hourly SMA is placed near the $11.10 level. Therefore, it seems like it won’t be easy for buyers to clear the $11.00, $11.10 and $11.20 resistance levels. If there is a fresh decline, the $10.40 level is an initial support.
