ETC Price Prediction for August 2022

The Ethereum Classic price from the past month has gained a notable upswing with a heavy influx of trading volume. However, the buying and selling volume, both comprise equally the volume but the bulls maintained their dominance to a large extent. While the  ETC price was on its way to reaching $50, an extended bearish trend dragged the price extremely lower. 

In the next couple of weeks until the weekly close, the ETC price is expected to continue with a descending consolidation and eventually reach the lower crucial support at $28. Yet the possibilities of a rebound occur at around $32, and in such cases, the asset may close the monthly trade close to $37 to $38. Else, a continued bearish trend may strengthen the bears to drag the price lower beyond $28.
