Will the $20.66 midpoint of the range prevent the plunge?

At the time of writing, the value of ETC was $20.93, down 0.93% but with more than 100% increased trading volume in the last 24 hours, according to Coinmarketcap. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) had dropped to the neutral line – the price could go either way. In addition, the Average Directional Index (ADX) was on a downward trend, demonstrating a weakening market structure.

On the other hand, the Money Flow Index (MFI) pulled out of the overbought zone – an outflow of money from the ETC market, but the outflows have slowed down at the time of writing. Ergo, near-term ETC bulls could defend the channel’s $20.66 midpoint if BTC doesn’t fall below $30,000. However, the $21.49 hurdle must be passed to retest the $22.26 upper limit.

Conversely, ETC could break the $22.06 support, especially if BTC drops below $30,000. But the plunge could slow down at $20 or the channel’s lower limit of $19. These levels could serve as a short position for sell targets in such a downswing scenario.

According to Coinglass, ETC funding rates have remained relatively positive in recent days — a bullish sentiment that could lead to a rebound at the channel’s $20.66 midpoint.

However, there have been more liquidations of long positions than short positions in the past 24 hours. According to Coin analysistotaled more than $1 million in liquidations and lost long positions worth more than $980,000 in the same period.

Short positions accounted for about $280,000 in total liquidations, showing that longs paid short positions – a bearish outlook that could give short sellers more clout. The market structure requires caution and investors should monitor BTC’s price action before taking any action.
