Ethereum Classic Price Analysis

There was no recovery above the $9.25 resistance in ETC price against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair started a sharp downside move and broke the $8.00 and $7.00 support levels. The decline was nasty as the price traded to a new 2018 low at $6.70. Later, there was a minor recover above the $7.00, but the price is still well below the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The price recently recovered above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $9.19 high to $6.70 low. However, the price is facing a solid resistance near the $7.80-8.00 area. There is also a short term consolidation pattern forming with resistance at $7.70 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. Above the consolidation resistance, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $9.19 high to $6.70 low is near $7.95. Therefore, the price is likely to find a strong selling interest near the $7.80 and $8.00 levels. On the downside, an initial support is at 7.20, below which the price could slide below $7.00.
