Ethereum Classic Price Supports

After a decent upward move, ETC price found resistance near the $11.80 level against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair started a downside correction and moved below the $11.50 and $11.00 support levels. It traded close to the $10.40 support and later bounced back. The price tested the $11.40 level and is currently correcting lower. It is trading below the $11.20 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

ETC sellers recently pushed the price towards the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $10.38 low to $11.36 high. However, losses were contained below the $10.80 support. Below this, the next major support is close to $10.75. It coincides with the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $10.38 low to $11.36 high.
