Bitcoin Cash Price Support

Recently, there was a nice upside move in bitcoin cash price above the $600 resistance against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair traded above the $650 level and settled above the 100 hourly simple moving average. A high was formed at $660 and later the price started consolidating gains.
