Ethereum Classic (ETC) has been in the clutch of the bears as it has shaved off as much as 30% in the past two weeks. Ethereum Classic price down 30% in the past two weeks ETC trading at $27.69 as of press time ETC’s downturn opens up opportunities for short-term positions ETC has dropped below the $33.9 zone barely two weeks ago and it seems Bitcoin is suffering the same fate as it failed to barrel past the key resistance of $19.7k. The selling pressure has been intermittently high in the crypto market. Coming from the larger Ethereum, ETC is predominantly viewed as secure as it is designed to alleviate key problems encountered with the larger or main token Ethereum, especially in line with amplifying speed and lowering fees. In fact, Ethereum Classic has evolved to be one of the most trusted and largest smart contract platforms as it is dubbed to be a valuable long-term investment to beef up and diversify one’s portfolio.

Ethereum Classic Price Seeing Bearish Pressure According to CoinMarketCap, ETC price has plunged by 1.01% or trading at $27.69 as of press time. At this point, a bearish block is seen close to the $30 level. A climb by 8% will prove to invalidate the bearish outlook of ETC. Traders should wait awhile for a price jump before entering any short position at the $27 to $29 range, which is considerably near $30.54, the key support zone. Chart: TradingView.com Judging by the daily and 12-hour timeframe, ETC is looking predominantly bearish with waves of lower highs and lower lows observed in the past couple of weeks. With that in mind, traders of ETC can trade in sync with this trend and wait for any selling opportunities. Ethereum Classic’s RSI is below the 50 zone which has also been revisited as a resistance. Hence, the RSI depicts a downtrend. OBV also validates that sellers are dominating the market with lower highs seen for about three weeks so far hinting at a high selling volume. With this trend, ETC short sellers can rake in profit somewhere along the key support levels of $26.9 and $24.5. Now, a jump above the $30.7 zone can pump up a stop-loss order. ETC Social Metrics Down Since August 2022 Ethereum Classic had its strongest troughs in July, especially in terms of social metrics which is higher compared to September figures. Apparently, the social metrics of ETC such as engagement have dropped since August which also triggered a price drop. On the other hand, the uptick in Ethereum Classic’s development activities in August has improved social metrics for ETC. Despite the price decline, ETC is recovering in terms of social dominance which is a good place to start. The downturn of ETC is said to be brought about by the bleeding of BTC as the king of cryptocurrencies wallows under the key resistance of $19.7. In order to recover, Bitcoin will have to rise above the $20.7k zone and then flip it favorably to a support zone. From a technical view, ETC’s vertigo is opening up opportunities for short-term positions.
