Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance
During the past few days, bitcoin cash price traded in a range above the $400 handle against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair tested the $400 and $410 support levels on a couple of occasions and remained well bid. There was a strong rise recently after the price formed a low at $408. The price jumped above the $425 and $430 levels, but sellers defended the $445 and $450 resistances.
There is also a major bearish trend line in place with resistance near $440 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair corrected lower below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $408 low to $442 high. It seems like the price may continue to move down towards the $425 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $408 low to $442 high. Below this, the price could test the $410 support in the near term. On the upside, the price has to break the $445, $450, and the 100 hourly SMA for more gains.
Looking at the chart, BCH price could continue to trade in a range above the $410 level. Once there is a proper close above $450 and the 100 hourly SMA, the price may perhaps rise towards $500.
