Ethereum Classic Price Resistance
There were decent gains in ETC price above the $30.00 level against the US dollar. The price traded as high as $33.41 from where a downside wave was initiated. It moved below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $26.00 low to $33.41 high. The downside move extended below the $31.00 support area, which ignited further declines.
During the downside move, there was a break below an important bullish trend line with support at $30.30 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The pair is currently testing the $29.60 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $26.00 low to $33.41 high is also acting as a support. However, the pair is now below $30.80 and the $30.20 supports, which means it is at a risk of more declines.
On the upside, there is a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $30.20. A break above the trend line and $30.50 is needed to avoid further declines. Above $30.50, the price could retest the $33.00 swing high in the near term.
