Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis
This week, there was a strong decline in bitcoin cash price after it broke the $340 support area against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair even broke the $300 support and settled well below the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). The decline was such that the price spiked below the $280 support level and traded close to the $250 level. A new monthly low was formed near $254 and the price recently started an upside correction.
There was a break above the $280 resistance plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last major drop from the $428 high to $254 swing low. However, the price is facing a lot of hurdles near the $320 and $330 levels. Moreover, the 55 simple moving average (4-hours) is also near the $330 level to act as a resistance. More importantly, there is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $340 on the 4-hours chart of the BCH/USD pair.
The 50% Fib retracement level of the last major drop from the $428 high to $254 swing low is also near the $340 level to act as solid resistance. Therefore, the bulls may face a lot of selling interest near the $330 and $340 levels. To start a fresh increase, the price must settle above $340 and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). The next main resistance is near the $385 level plus the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last major drop from the $428 high to $254 swing low.
