Ethereum Classic Price Support
There was no major recovery in ETC price as it failed to move above $12.00 against the US Dollar. The price traded lower and broke the $11.80 support area to settle below the 100 hourly simple moving average. A low was formed recently at $10.48 where buyers appeared. At the moment, the price is consolidating near $10.50 and remains at a risk of more declines.
On the upside, an initial resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $11.50 high to $10.48 low. The most important hurdle is near a crucial bearish trend line with resistance at $10.90 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The same trend line is positioned with the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $11.50 high to $10.48 low. Moreover, the 100 hourly SMA is at $11.00.
Therefore, the $10.90-11.00 region will most likely act as a major resistance in the near term. Once there is a close above $11.00, the price might head towards the next resistance close to the $12.00 handle. On the downside, the $10.00 level is the most important support and pivot area for ETC buyers.
