Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis
After consolidating for many days above the $430 level, bitcoin cash price reacted to the downside against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair failed to break the $440 and $450 resistance levels and declined sharply. It broke the $432, $430 and $420 support levels to move into a bearish zone. There was even a close below the $420 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
It seems like the BCH/USD pair was rejected near a major bearish trend line with current resistance at $435 on the hourly chart. The pair traded close to the $400 handle and formed a low at $408. It is currently consolidating just below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $438 high to $408 low. The price may perhaps correct a few points above the $415 level. However, gains could be limited and levels such as $420 and $425 are likely to prevent gains. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $438 high to $408 low awaits near $423.
Looking at the chart, BCH price has moved into a bearish zone below the $425 level. If there is any recovery in the short term, buyers are likely to struggle near $420 or $425.
