Bitcoin Cash Price Decline
There was a fresh start of a downside move from the $580 and $600 swing highs in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair declined heavily and broke the $560 and $550 support levels. The decline was crucial as the price broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $470 swing low to $610 swing high. The price even settled below the $540 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
More importantly, there was a break below a crucial bullish trend line with support at $555 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair traded towards the $500-510 support area where buyers emerged. However, the recent downside break seems significant since the price settled below $540. An initial support sits at the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $470 swing low to $610 swing high. Should buyers fail to defend the $505-510 support zone, there could be more losses in the near term.
