Bitcoin Cash Price Uptrend

Yesterday, we saw a sharp rally above the $800 level in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. Later, the BCH/USD pair corrected lower and tested the $780 support area, which acted as a buy zone. As a result, there was a fresh upward move and the price broke the $810 and $850 resistance levels. The upside move was strong as the price traded towards the $875 level and formed a high at $876.

At the moment, the price is consolidating gains below $875. An initial support is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $780 low to $876 high. More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted key bullish trend line is intact with support near $810 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The trend line support and $800 holds a lot of significance since they were resistance zones earlier. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $780 low to $876 high is positioned near the $829 level to prevent declines.
