Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance
This past week we saw a major decline in bitcoin cash price from the $2600 swing high against the US Dollar. The price traded below the $2000, $1500 and $1000 support levels. A low was formed at $835 from where the price started an upside correction. Moreover, the 100 simple moving average (H4), currently at $950 also acted as a support and prevented losses. There was a corrective wave above the $1000 level.
However, the price struggled to move above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $2600 high to $835 low. There is also a major descending channel forming with resistance at $1225 on the 4-hours chart of BCH/USD. The same channel resistance is acting as a monster hurdle for buyers near $1225-1250. As long as the price is below $1250, it remains in a downtrend. Upsides remain capped until there is a close above the channel resistance at $1250.
On the downside, the 100 simple moving average (H4), currently at $950 is a major support area. Below $950, the channel support is at $680. Therefore, if the pair fails to move above $1250, there is a chance of a downside move toward $950 or even $700.
