Bitcoin Cash Price Support

After further declines, bitcoin cash price was able to find support near the $1,460 level against the US Dollar. The price traded as low as $1,463 and later started an upside move. It traded higher and broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1,702 high to $1,463 low. It opened the doors for more gains and the price traded above a few important hurdles such as $1,550 and $1,600.
