Bitcoin Cash Price Support

There was a slow and steady rise above the $1,450 level in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The price moved above the $1,500 level and is currently trading comfortably above the stated level. Moreover, the price is above the $1,510 pivot level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. After the last decline to $1,381, the price recovered and moved above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1,615 swing high to $1,380 low.

However, there is a major resistance near the $1,540-1,550 levels. There is also a short-term contracting triangle forming with resistance at $1,540 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD.

A break and close above the $1,550 level could clear the path for a push towards $1,600.
