Bitcoin Cash Price Upside Hurdle
Yesterday, there was a decent upside move in Bitcoin cash price above the $320 level against the US Dollar. The price gained pace towards $350, but failed to break the mentioned level. The most important thing was failure to clear this week’s highlighted key bearish trend line with current resistance at $335 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. The pair was rejected from the trend line resistance at $350 and started a downside move.
It moved back below the $320 level and recently traded as low as $305.8. It is currently correcting higher, but facing sellers near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $353 high to $305 low. Above $325, the next resistance is near $330 and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $353 high to $305 low. However, the most significant hurdle remains around the same trend line resistance just below $340.
As long as the price is below the trend line and $350, it remains at a risk of further declines. On the downside, the $300 handle is crucial. A daily close below $300 would ignite sharp losses in the short term.
