Bitcoin Cash Price Trend

There was a decent downside correction from the $612 high in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair declined and traded below the $600 and $560 support levels. However, the decline was protected by the $540-550 support zone. A low was formed near $537 and later the price started a fresh upward move. It traded above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $612 high to $537 low.

The price also traded above the $570 level and it is currently consolidating below $590-600. Moreover, it is testing the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $612 high to $537 low. Once it gains momentum above the $590 resistance, it will most likely surpass the $600 resistance. Above $600, the price could revisit the last swing high at $612.
