Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance
There was no major move in Bitcoin cash price above $325-330 against the US Dollar during the past 2-3 sessions. The price traded in a range above the $300 level and is currently preparing for a break. The most important thing is the fact that this week’s highlighted bearish trend line with resistance at $335-340 is still in place. It might continue to prevent gains above $350 until buyers are able to gain momentum for an upside break.
At the moment, there is a short term contracting triangle forming with resistance at $315 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. The triangle resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $354 high to $306 low. A clear break above the triangle resistance and the $320 level is needed for a push towards $335-340. The trend line resistance holds the key in the short term for a move above $350.
On the downside, the triangle support is near $310. A break below the last would take the price towards $300 followed by the last swing low near $290.
