Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance
This past week, there was a recovery initiated bitcoin cash price from the $1500 swing low against the US Dollar. The price moved higher and was able to trade above the $1700 and $1800 resistance levels. There was also a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $2960 high to $1340 low. It opened the doors for more gains and the price was able to move above the $1900 level.
During the upside move, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance at $1800 on the 4-hours chart of BCH/USD. It helped buyers in pushing the price toward $2000. However, there is a crucial resistance around the $2200 and $2300 level. Both $2200 and $2300 levels provided support earlier, and now they may act as a resistance. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $2960 high to $1340 low is around $2150.
All these resistances are major barriers for an upside push toward $2500. On the downside, there are a few supports such as $1800. $1600 and $1500. Any downside reaction will most likely find support at $1500.
