The Status:

  • Bitcoin cash price is forming a base near the $410 support area against the US Dollar.
  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $428 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD (data feed from Kraken).
  • The price has to break the $428 resistance to correct towards $435-440 in the near term.


Technical Aspect

Recently, we saw a downside move in Bitcoin cash price towards the $400 handle against the US Dollar. The price traded as low as $410.8 where it found buyers and is currently attempting a recovery in the short term. However, an upside move won’t be easy since it is facing many hurdles like $425 and $440. To start with, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $425 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD.

The trend line resistance near $425 is very important. It is also near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $453 high to $410 low. A break above the $425 resistance would encourage buyers to push the price towards $435. The mentioned $435 resistance is the next barrier. It is the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $453 high to $410 low. Once there is a break above the $435-440 resistance, there is a chance of further gains in the near term.

On the downside, the $310 low is a major support area. Should there be a close below $410, the price would easily test the $400 handle.
