Ethereum Classic price continues to bleed

Ethereum Classic price has dropped 72% from its all-time high at $179.83 and hints that this crash could continue. During this massive sell-off, ETC formed a demand zone that extends from $59.43 to $80. However, the bears disregarded the support and sliced through it, flipping it into a supply zone.

The next course of action for Ethereum Classic price is to either test the lower boundary of the resistance area at $59.43 and head lower or continue to free fall from its current position ($51.52). Assuming a retest of $59.43, ETC could stand to depreciate 20% to tag the immediate support at $46.47. A breakdown of this barrier will serve as a confirmation of the downtrend.

In that case, the altcoin could slide 15% to tag the subsequent support floor at $39.79. If the bearish momentum continues to pour in, $33.60 and $27.75 are the following areas of interest.
