Ethereum Classic Price Support
There was a short-term upside move towards the $15.00-15.20 levels recently in ETC price against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair failed to move above the $15.20 resistance and started a downside move. It declined and traded below the $15.00 and $14.80 support levels. Moreover, there was a close below the $14.50 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
During the decline, there was also a break below a connecting bullish trend line with support at $14.30 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. The pair traded towards the $13.00 handle and formed a low at $13.15. At the moment, the price is recovering and testing the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $15.19 high to $13.15 low. However, there are many barriers on the upside near the $14.50 level. The 100 hourly SMA is positioned near 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $15.19 high to $13.15 low.
Therefore, the $14.50 level may perhaps act as a strong hurdle. Above $14.50, the price may retest the $15.00 level. On the downside, the price may retest the last swing low of $13.00. A break below $13.00 could ignite further declines towards $12.00.
