Ethereum Classic Price Resistance

During the past few days, there were bullish moves above $16.00 in ETC price against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair settled above the $16.50 support area, which is a positive sign. However, the price failed on a couple of occasions to break the $17.30-40 resistance zone. It recently dipped to $16.60 and climbed back towards the $17.25-30 zone, where it faced sellers.

It declined and broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $16.60 low to $17.25 high. However, the price found a decent support near $16.80 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. At the outset, there is a crucial contracting triangle forming with resistance near $17.25 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. Therefore, the pair must clear the triangle resistance and then $17.30-40 to gain upside momentum. Above this last, the price will most likely surge above $18.00. On the flip side, if the price moves down, it could test the triangle support at $16.60.

The chart suggests that the price is forming a breakout pattern with resistance at $17.30 and support at $16.60. Should there be a break and close below $16.60, the price may well drop towards $16.00. Otherwise, it is most likely to break the $17.30 resistance to climb higher.

Hourly MACD The MACD for ETC/USD is slowly moving in the bearish zone.
