  • The pair has to move above the $830 and $840 resistances to gain traction in the near term.

Bitcoin cash price remains supported above $800 against the US Dollar. BCH/USD is about to make the next move either above $830 or below $800.

Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance

Yesterday, we saw a minor downward correction from the $890 high in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair declined below the $850 and $840 support levels, and tested the $800 area. Buyers appeared near the $800 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price moved a few points higher and traded above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $890 high to $805 swing low.

However, the upside move was protected by the $840-850 resistance area. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $890 high to $805 swing low also acted as a resistance. The pair declined once again and retested the $805 support area and the 100 hourly SMA. At the moment, the price is consolidating above $800-805 and is preparing for the next move. It seems like there is a contracting triangle forming with support near $805 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair.
