• Ethereum Classic price has been consolidating between the $30 to $45 range for more than two months.
  • A minor rally to retest the $32.15 hurdle seems plausible, but a move beyond seems unlikely.
  • A flip of the $32.15 barrier will invalidate the bearish thesis and result in a potential jump to to $39.

Ethereum Classic price has seen a massive rejection at crucial points, leading to a steep correction. The recent breakdown of another stable support indicates that a further downswing seems likely. 

Ethereum Classic price ready for another collapse

Ethereum Classic price is currently hovering below $29.40, which is the midpoint of the $13.33 to $45.47 range. This development for ETC comes after a 41% sell-off between August 13 and September 21, which has pushed the altcoin from $45.82 to a swing low of $26.73.

Now, Ethereum Classic price faces a decision as it tags the $29.40 barrier, flip it and attempt another leg-up or face rejection and drop lower. From a price action standpoint, ETC could dip a little lower before heading into the oversold territory.

However, this downtrend will arrive after a minor run-up to retest the $32.15 hurdle. Failure to overcome this hurdle could result in a sell-off to $25.54, which is the 62% Fibonacci retracement level or the 76.4% variant at $22.81. 

This move would constitute a 30% downswing and is likely where the downside is capped for Ethereum Classic price in the short term.

On the other hand, if Ethereum Classic price fails to sustain its bearish pressure, it could result in a bullish takeover. If ETC produces a daily candlestick close above $32.15, it will invalidate the bearish thesis and potentially kick-start a run-up to $39.02.
