Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance
There was an increase in selling pressure below $800 on bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair extended declines below the $750 and $700 levels. It traded towards the $650 level and formed a low at $664. Later, the price started an upside correction and moved above the $700 level. However, the price is still way below the $800 handle and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
The price moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $905 high to $664 low. However, there are many hurdles for buyers near the $750-770 zone. More importantly, there is a major bearish trend line in place with resistance at $765 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $905 high to $664 low is near the $785 level. Therefore, the price has to surpass the $750, $770 and $785 resistance levels to overcome sellers near $800.
Looking at the chart, the price is struggling to move further higher above $770. As long as the price is below the $800 handle, there is a risk of more losses below $700 in the near term.
