Ethereum Classic price eyes 30% crash as Merge-induced hype disappears – FXStreet

Ethereum Classic price shows a clear, persistent downtrend with distinctive lower highs and lower lows. The ongoing upward move will probably form a lower high and trigger another sell-off.
Ethereum Classic price has dropped roughly 33% between August 13 and August 29, creating a string of lower lows and lower highs. The latest swing low formed at $30.32, and the ongoing upswing is likely to continue the pattern and create another lower high.
$35.14 to $36.49 is the next area where Ethereum Classic price could form a lower high. Therefore, investors can expect ETC to move up by another 5% to 7% over this week before positioning for a resumption of the downtrend. Looking for weakness in the aforementioned resistance area is likely to bode well for investors that are looking to short ETC.
The resulting downswing could knock Ethereum Classic price down by as much as 25% to the first support level at $26.27. However, the move could even extend to the next resistance level at $25.11.
Instead of reversing in the mentioned area, there is a chance Ethereum Classic price could extend higher and retest $39.56. Although this development will create a higher high, the downtrend could still be intact if the sellers take control and produce a lower low in a lower time frame. 
The targets remain the same in this situation, but the entry point would be a little higher.

While things are looking bearish for Ethereum Classic price, a daily candlestick close above $39.56 will create a higher high, suggesting that the buyers are back.
This move should sustain above the aforementioned level; doing so will invalidate the bearish thesis for ETC and trigger a potential rally to sweep equal highs at $42.58 or $45.48.
The Merge update has caused Ethereum Classic price to rally quite a bit within a short period of time, but post-Merge, these altcoins, especially ETC might face a strong headwind and lead to unwinding of long positions or dearth of capital.

Bitcoin price hit a floor after Jerome Powell’s speech at the Jackson Hole Economic Symposium. After the asset’s price declined nearly 6% over the past week, Wall Street analysts believe Bitcoin has hit its bottom. 
Bitcoin price shows that the recent sell-off was quickly undone as bulls came to the rescue. This development was well received by altcoins, including Ethereum and Ripple, which have also experienced quick recoveries.
XRP price reveals a massive bearish setup that could ruin its recovery rally, especially if bulls fail to invalidate it. Therefore, investors need to exercise caution as this outlook is in line with the macro bearish structure of the crypto market.
MATIC price is in a range tightening mode after a steep correction last week. This development will likely revert to the mean before establishing a directional bias. 
Bitcoin price shows a tight consolidation on a lower time frame – an ascending parallel channel – that repeats the motif of three larger channels that have developed on higher time frames since the start of 2022.
