This past week, there were heavy losses in bitcoin cash price below the $1,000 level against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair declined and broke the $800 and $700 support levels. However, the $650 level acted as a decent support and prevented further declines. A low was formed at $651 and the price started an upward recovery. It gained pace and broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $931 high to $651 low.
However, the price is facing a major hurdle around the $800 level. There are two bearish trend lines formed with resistance at $770 and $810 on the 4-hours chart of the BCH/USD pair.

More importantly, the 100 simple moving average (4-hours) is also positioned near the $800 level to act as a major resistance.
