Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis
Yesterday, we discussed chances of more declines below the $500 support in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair did move down and broke the $500 and $480 support levels. The decline was nasty as the price dropped by around $100 and traded close to the $400 support. A new low was formed at $404 and the price is currently consolidating losses.
An initial resistance on the upside is $435. It represents the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $538 high to $404 low. At the moment, it seems like a decent recovery is very unlikely above $435 and $440.

It also coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $538 high to $404 low. On the other hand, if the price continues to move down, it could break the $400 support.
