Ethereum Classic Price Support
Ethereum classic price ETC dipped once yesterday, tested a trend line support and traded higher. However, as I stated yesterday, I don’t recommend buying ETC for now. The result is clearly visible on charts, pointing that my view was correct. The price moved down later and broke yesterday’s highlighted bullish trend line on the hourly chart of ETC/BTC (data feed via Simplefx).
Once there was a break below the trend line support, there was a sharp downside move which took ETC/BTC towards 0.004BTC. A new low was formed at 0.00405BTC, and currently the price is attempting to recover. An initial resistance on the upside is around the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the 0.0057BTC high to 0.00405BTC low.
The most important resistance is near the 100 hourly simple moving average, which is also just around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the 0.0057BTC high to 0.00405BTC low. I think, if the ETC/BTC pair corrects further higher, then it may face sellers near the 100 hourly simple moving average. One may consider selling rallies in the short term, but with caution as there might be false spikes.
Hourly MACD – The MACD is placed in the bearish slope, calling for more losses.
Hourly RSI – The RSI is also below the 50 level, which is signaling a downtrend in ETC.
Major Support Level – 0.0040BTC
Major Resistance Level – 0.0048BTC
