Forecasting a 36% meltdown in Ethereum Classic price

  • Ethereum Classic price is on the verge of extending its two-month retracement to $15.00.
  • Multiple sell signals rule out an immediate rebound for ETC price.
  • Traders can consider $19.50 and $15.00 as potential take profit targets.

Ethereum Classic price selloff woes seem far from over and may even escalate if support at $23.50 breaks. The original Ethereum blockchain token has not been able to circumvent declines after peaking at $45.82 a few weeks after the Merge software upgrade.

Ethereum Classic price is at a crucial juncture

All eyes are fixated on the Ethereum price’s ability to hold onto the support, highlighted at $23.50 firmly. If it can respect this demand zone, short sellers can forget about ETC price, prolonging the down leg 36.20% below the breakout point to $15.00.

The lack of solid support below $23.50 increases the risk of ETC price sliding to $15.00. If push comes to shove, investors should expect the price to tag June lows at $13.50.
