Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance
There was a slight correction of around $50-100 yesterday in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. However, the upside move was capped by the $1,100 level. The mentioned $1,100 was a buy zone earlier and it recently prevented an upside move. The price declined once again and it even broke a major support near $1,000 to move into a bearish zone.
It traded as low as $970 and it seems like it may decline further. An initial resistance is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1,109 high to $970 low. On the upside, there are many barriers near the $1,050 level. There are also two bearish trend lines forming with resistance near $1,040 and $1,080 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. Furthermore, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1,109 high to $970 low is around $1,040.
Therefore, the $1,040 level may act as a major resistance on the upside. On the downside, the price will most likely retest the last swing low of $970. A break below the stated $970 level could push the price towards the next supports near $950 and $920.
