Bitcoin Cash Price Support
After trading above the $850 level, there was a dip in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair declined below the $820 and $800 levels. However, the downside move was protected by the $780 support area. Moreover, the 100 simple moving average (4-hours) also acted as a crucial support for buyers around $780. It seems like there is a strong base formed near the $770-780 levels.
More importantly, a key bullish trend line with current support at $800 also stopped declines on the 4-hours chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair bounced back and moved above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $879 high to $778 low. The current price action is positive and suggests more gains above $840 in the near term. Buyers need to push the price above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $879 high to $778 low at $840. Above this, the price could move towards the last swing high at $885-880.
Looking at the chart, the price is well supported on the downside above $780. As long as the price is above $780 and the 100 SMA, it may perhaps continue to move higher.
