Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a fresh downside move below $550 in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair declined below the $540 and $525 support levels. The drop was such that the price tested the $500 support area. Later, buyers appeared and protected further losses below $500. A low was formed at $502 and the price started an upside correction.

It has moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $549 high to $502 low. However, there are many hurdles on the upside near the $530 level. More importantly, there is a crucial bearish trend line in place with resistance at $530 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. Additionally, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $549 high to $502 low is also at $531. Finally, the 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned near $530. Therefore, it won’t be easy for BCH buyers to clear the $530 and $535 resistance levels.
