Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance
There was a solid selling interest near the $720 level in BCH price against the US Dollar. The price faced heavy selling pressure and moved below the $600 and $520 support levels. It even traded below the $400 level and formed a low at $307.6. Later, a recovery wave was initiated and the price moved back above the $400 level. It also cleared the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $720 high to $307 low. However, the upside move failed near the $470 resistance area.
The 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $720 high to $307 low also acted as a hurdle for more gains. There is a descending triangle pattern forming with resistance at $500 on the 4-hours chart of BCH/USD. The triangle resistance near $500-520 is a crucial hurdle for buyers in the near term. The 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $720 high to $307 low at $514 is also a key resistance.
As long as the price is below the $500-520 resistance levels, it might continue to move down. On the downside, an immediate support is near $400.
