Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance

After a brief consolidation around the $240-250 levels, Bitcoin cash price moved higher against the US Dollar. The price surged higher sharply and broke the $375 resistance. It even moved above the $400 handle and traded as high as $439.28. However, buyers lost momentum, and all gains were quickly reversed. The price moved down and broke the $375 support area to trim all gains.

During the downside move, there was a break below a bullish trend line with support at $330 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. There was also a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $241 low to $439 high. Having said that, the 100 hourly simple moving average is currently protecting losses near $300. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $241 low to $439 high is also preventing declines.
