Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed a possible upside break above the $530 resistance in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. However, the BCH/USD pair failed to clear the $530 resistance level and started a fresh decline. During the downside, it broke the $525 support level. It also cleared the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $500 swing low to $530 high.

Moreover, yesterday’s highlighted ascending channel was breached with support at $521 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair is currently trading below the $520 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. An immediate support is near the $510 level. It represents the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $500 swing low to $530 high. Below the $510 support, the price is likely to accelerate declines towards the $505 and $500 support levels. On the other hand, if there is an upside move, the price may struggle near the $520 level. Above this, the $530 resistance could be retested.
