Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis: BCH/USD Consolidating Above $680

Key Points

  • Bitcoin cash price remained in a range and consolidated above the $680 support against the US Dollar.
  • Yesterday’s highlighted key bearish trend line is intact with current resistance near $720 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair remains at a risk of more losses as long as it is below the $710 and $720 resistance levels.

Bitcoin cash price is struggling to move above $710 against the US Dollar. BCH/USD is currently consolidating and it remains at a risk of further declines.

Bitcoin Cash Price Trend

After a major decline below the $700 level, bitcoin cash price found support near $680 against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair formed a low near $683 and later it started a minor upside correction. It moved above the $690 level, but it failed to move past the $700-710 resistance. Moreover, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $780 high to $683 low also acted as a resistance.

It seems like the $700-710 zone is a major resistance and a pivot area. A break above the same is needed for a push towards the next resistance at $720-725. More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted key bearish trend line is intact with current resistance near $720 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The trend line now coincides with the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $780 high to $683 low. The next hurdle for buyers is near the $730 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
