Bitcoin Cash Price Trend
There was a solid start to a new uptrend in Bitcoin cash above $440 this week against the US Dollar. There were decent gains in BCH and the price was even able to move above the $450 resistance. To initiate the upside, there was a break above a major bearish trend line at $460. It opened the doors for more gains and the price was able to move above the $500 handle. It traded to a new monthly high at $543 from where a correction was initiated.
The price moved below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $425 low to $543 high. However, the downside move was prevented by the $500 handle.

As long as the price is above the $500 handle, there are chances of more gains above $550.
