Ethereum Classic Price Analysis

This past week, there was a decent recovery above $4.80 in ETC price against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair traded above the $5.00 and $5.20 resistance levels. A high was formed at $5.27 and later the price started a fresh decline. It traded lower sharply and broke the $5.00 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There was even a break below the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $4.40 low to $5.27 high.

Moreover, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support at $4.60 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The pair is currently trading near the $4.40 low, which is acting as a support. If the price continues to move down, it could test the $4.20 support. It coincides with the 1.236 Fib extension level of the last wave from the $4.40 low to $5.27 high. However, the key support is near the $4.00-4.05 zone where buyers are likely to emerge. If the price corrects higher, the previous supports at $4.50 and $4.75 are likely to prevent gains.
