Key Points

  • Bitcoin cash price fell sharply and even broke the $700 handle against the US Dollar.
  • There is a major bearish trend line formed with resistance near $735 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair may correct higher in the short term, but upsides are likely to be capped by $710-730.

Bitcoin cash price is back in a bearish trend below $750 against the US Dollar. BCH/USD is now facing many challenges on the upside above $710.

Bitcoin Cash Price Resistances

Yesterday, there was a sharp downside move from well above $750 in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair tumbled by more than $50 and broke the $730 and $700 supports. It traded as low as $684 and it is currently consolidating losses. An initial resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $779 high to $684 low near $706.

However, there are many resistances on the upside above the $706 level. The previous support at $710 is a key barrier. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line formed with resistance near $735 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The same trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $779 high to $684 low. More importantly, the 100 hourly simple moving average is also positioned near the $735 resistance. Therefore, if the price corrects higher, it could face many challenges around $710 and $730.
