Bitcoin Cash Price Correction
After a major upside move, bitcoin cash price traded toward the $3000 level against the US Dollar. However, the price failed to gain momentum above the $3000 level and formed a high at $3307. Later, a downside correction wave was initiated and the price moved below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $1760 low to $3307 high. It seems like the current wave is a part of correction, but the price has to stay above $2500.
It has already tested the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $1760 low to $3307 high. The price is currently recoverin, but it is struggling to gain momentum above $2800 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, there is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance at $2800 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. The trend line resistance at $2800 is acting as a major barrier for buyers. A close above the $2800 level is needed for buyers to gain traction.
On the downside, the 100 hourly SMA is a short-term support around $2700. The pair remains supported above the $2500 level. A break below $2500 would negate the current bullish bias.
