Bitcoin Cash Price Decline
This past week, there was a major bearish reaction from the $910 resistance zone in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The price started a major downside move and dropped below the $850 and $800 support levels. The decline was such that the price even broke the $750 support zone. A low was formed near $721 and the price is now trading well below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
At the moment, the price is correcting higher and is trading near $740-750. The 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $928 high to $721 low is acting as a resistance. On the upside, there are many hurdles for buyers around the $820 level. The stated level was a support earlier, and now it coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $928 high to $721 low. Moreover, there is a crucial bearish trend line in place with resistance near $820 on the 4-hours chart of the BCH/USD pair.
Looking at the chart, the price may face a lot of barriers near $820. On the downside, the recent low of $721 is a short-term support. A break below this could push the price towards the $700 handle.
