Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance

There was no major move above $650 in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair remained in a tight range above the $610 level during the past three sessions. There was a dip below the $630 level on a few occasions, but the $625 level acted as a support and prevented losses. Having said that the price is now well below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $549 swing low to $660 high.

On the downside, the $625 level is an initial support and it coincides with the 100 hourly simple moving average. Below $625, the price could test the $605 support zone.

Should the price fail to stay above the $600-605 support, it could slide back towards the $550 level.
