Ethereum Classic Price Decline
ETC price was bearish throughout this week against the US dollar and Bitcoin. Every minor attempt of recovery found sellers on the upside. There was a decline in the market sentiment and buying interest for the ETC, which resulted in a price drop. We have been analyzing the hourly chart lately, so today I decided to show a few things on the 4-hours chart of ETC/BTC (data feed via Simplefx).
It clearly shows how the price was weakened, and faced selling pressure. There is a bearish trend line formed on the chart, which is acting as a resistance. Every time there was a minor recovery, sellers appeared and pushed the price down. Recently, the price traded as low as 0.00111BTC, and it looks like the sellers are not done yet.
There is a possibility that the price may clear the recent swing low and test the 0.00100BTC support area. On the upside, the trend line and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the drop from the 0.00155BTC high to 0.00111BTC low may continue to act as a resistance. Only a close above it could call for a substantial recovery.
4-hours MACD – The MACD is strongly placed in the bearish zone, calling for more losses.
4-hours RSI – The RSI is well below the 50 level, signaling seller’s strength.
Major Support Level – 0.00100BTC
Major Resistance Level – 0.00120BTC
