Ethereum Classic Price Analysis

Recently, ETC price declined below the $11.00 support against the US dollar. However, the ETC/USD pair found support near the $10.80 level and started consolidating in a range. Later, the price corrected higher and moved above the $11.00 resistance. There was also a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $11.33 high to $10.81 low.

The upside move was positive above the $11.00 level, but buyers are currently facing a strong resistance near $11.15. It seems like the 100 hourly simple moving average is acting as a barrier near $11.15. There is also a major bearish trend line in place with resistance at $11.20 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $11.33 high to $10.81 low is also near the trend line. Therefore, the price is likely to struggle near the $11.15 and $11.20 levels. Above these, the price could test the next key resistance at $12.00.
