Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis
This past week, there was a solid upside correction from the $150 support area in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair formed a low at $146 and climbed above the $160, $180 and $190 resistance levels. There was even a break above the $200 barrier, but buyers failed to hold gains. As a result, there was a fresh decline below $190 and the price remained well below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
During the decline, there was a break below the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $146 low to $206 high. The price is currently consolidating above the $160 support and it remains at a risk of more losses.
