Ethereum Classic Price Analysis

During the past few days, there was a sharp decline in ETC price below the $6.00 support against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair even broke the $5.00 support area and settled well below the 100 hourly simple moving average. The recent rise in selling pressure on Ethereum, ripple and bitcoin sparked more losses in ETC below $4.50. The price even broke the $4.20 support level and formed a new yearly low at $4.08.

At the moment, the price is consolidating losses above the $4.10 level. An initial resistance is the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $4.91 high to $4.08 low. More importantly, there is a major bearish trend line formed with resistance at $4.50 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $4.91 high to $4.08 low. Therefore, if the price corrects higher, it may face a strong resistance near the $4.40 and $4.50 levels.
