Bitcoin cash price faced an increased selling pressure against the US Dollar. BCH/USD dropped below the $825 support to move into a bearish zone.
Bitcoin Cash Price Decline
There were a couple of failures noted above the $870 level in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair started a downside move and broke the $850 and $840 support levels. There was even a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $770 swing low to $878 high. Moreover, the price broke a key support at $825 and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average.
During the decline, yesterday’s highlighted important bullish trend line was breached with support at $840 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair is currently trading below the $800 level and is testing the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $770 swing low to $878 high. It seems like the price moved back in a bearish zone and it could accelerate declines towards the $780 support area. Below this, the price may perhaps test the $750 support zone.
Looking at the chart, the price is clearly under pressure below $825. If there is an upside move, the broken support at $825 and the 100 hourly SMA is likely to act as resistances. Above this, there is a bearish trend line with resistance near $840 on the same chart.
