During the upside, there was even a break above a bearish trend line with resistance at $10.30 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD.

The pair is currently consolidating below the $11.00 handle trading in a range. An initial support is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $9.55 low to $10.99 high. However, the most important support is near the broken resistance at $10.50. The 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned near $10.50 to act as a monster support.
