Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance
We saw a continuous decline in Bitcoin cash price this week from the $700 swing high against the US Dollar. The price recently reached the $520-500 support area where buyers emerged. They protected declines and it seems like the price is forming support near $520. The price has already recovered well above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $662.50 high to $520.36 low. It is a positive sign and might take the price above $600.
At the moment, the price is struggling near a major hurdle at $580-600. Moreover, this week’s long followed descending channel pattern with current resistance near $580 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD is also acting as a hurdle. Lastly, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $662.50 high to $520.36 low is also near $590. Therefore, a break above the $580-600 levels with a close is needed for more gains.
Once there is a close above $600, the price could attempt a move towards the $660 level. On the downside, the $540 and $520 levels are decent supports.
