Bitcoin Cash Price Upside Break
This past week there was a continuous decline in BCH price from the $450 high against the US Dollar. The price followed a declining path and moved below the $420, $400 and $380 support levels. It traded as low as $343 and it seems like the price is now forming a bottom. It is slowly moving in a range above $340 and forming a consolidation pattern. There was a break above a bearish trend line with resistance at $350 on the 4-hours chart of BCH/USD.
It has cleared the way for more gains above $350 in the near term. An initial resistance on the upside is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $486 high to $343 low. However, it won’t be easy for buyers to gain momentum above $380. The next major hurdle is near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $486 high to $343 low at $390. The mentioned $390 level was a support earlier and now it would stop upsides in BCH.
However, the recent break is a positive sign above $350. As long as the price is above $340, it could attempt a break of $380.
