Ethereum Classic Price Analysis

There was a sharp increase in selling pressure from the $11.00 swing high on ETC price against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair started a major downside move and broke key supports near the $10.50 level. There was a proper close below the $10.50-60 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price even broke the $10.00 support level to move further into a bearish zone.

The decline was initiated after there was a break below a declining channel with support at $10.54 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The pair traded as low as $9.66 and it is still in a bearish zone. An initial resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $10.80 high to $9.66 low. Above the $9.90 and $10.00 resistance levels, the price may recover towards the $10.25 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $10.80 high to $9.66 low. Therefore, as long as the price is below the $10.00 handle, there is a risk of more losses.
