Bitcoin Cash Price Technical Analysis – BCH/USD Likely to Extend Declines

Aayush Jindal | May 9, 2018 | 4:08 am

Key Points

  • Bitcoin cash price failed to move above the $1,700 resistance and declined against the US Dollar.
  • Yesterday’s highlighted connecting bearish trend line with current resistance at $1,630 prevented gains on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair may continue to move down and it could even break the $1,550 support in the near term.

Bitcoin cash price is moving down once again against the US Dollar. BCH/USD could extend its decline towards the $1,485 level if sellers remain in control.

Bitcoin Cash Price Upside Hurdle

Yesterday, we discussed an upside correction above $1,650 in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The price did move higher, but it failed to gain momentum above the $1,700 resistance. Sellers defended gains above the stated $1,700 and pushed the price back below the 100 hourly simple moving average. There was also a failure to break the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1,835 high to $1,565 low.

More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted connecting bearish trend line with current resistance at $1,630 prevented gains on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair is currently under pressure and it broke the $1,600 support level. Additionally, it is about to break the $1,565 low, which could open the doors for more losses. The next stop for sellers could be the 1.618 Fib extension of the last wave from the $1,568 low to $1,701 high at $1,485. An intermediate support is at $1,536, which is the 1.236 Fib extension of the same wave.
