Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis: BCH/USD Primed To Test $100

Aayush Jindal | December 6, 2018 | 7:30 am

Key Points

  • Bitcoin cash price is under a lot of pressure after it broke the $150 support against the US Dollar.
  • There is a major declining channel formed with resistance near $135 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair is currently trading near $125 and it may slide further towards the $100 level in the near term.

Bitcoin cash price registered heavy losses from the $200 swing high against the US Dollar. BCH/USD could continue to move down towards the $100 level.

Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed that bitcoin cash price may slide further towards $125 against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair did trade lower after it broke the $150 and $145 support levels. The decline was such that the price even broke the $130 level and traded close to $125. It is now positioned well below the $140 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The recent low was formed near $126 and the current price action suggests more gains. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $158 swing high to $126 low. More importantly, there is a major declining channel formed with resistance near $135 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair is very unlikely to trade above the $135 and $140 resistance levels in the short term. Above $140, the next resistance is the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $158 swing high to $126 low. On the downside, a close below the $125 level could push the price towards $110 or $100.
