  • The pair is likely to remain in a bearish zone and it could slide towards the $500 support.

Bitcoin cash price is under pressure below $550 against the US Dollar. BCH/USD could accelerate losses towards the $500 and $480 support levels.

Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis

There was a slow and steady decline initiated from well above $600 in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair broke the $580 and $550 support levels to move into a bearish zone. The decline was such that there was a close below the $550 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price recently traded below the $521 low and formed a new low at $510.

Later, there was a minor upside correction above $520. The price traded above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $561 high to $510 low. However, the price struggled to move above the $525-530 resistance. There is also a crucial bearish trend line formed with resistance at $535 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. Above the trend line, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $561 high to $510 low is a major hurdle near the $536 level. Therefore, a proper close above the $535 and $540 levels is required for a decent recovery.
