Bitcoin Cash Price Trend
There was an attempt recently to move above the $1,280 and $1,290 resistance levels in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. However, the price faced a lot of sellers near $1,290 and it could not move above the $1,300 level. As a result, there was a downside move and the price broke the $1,250 support. There was also a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $1,125 low to $1,282 high.
The downside move is currently finding support near $1,220. There is also a short-term connecting bullish trend line forming with support at $1,220 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $1,125 low to $1,282 high is acted as a support. If the pair fails to stay above the $1,220 level, it could test the 100 hourly simple moving average. An intermediate support is around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $1,125 low to $1,282 high.
On the upside, a break above the $1,280-90 zone is needed for more gains. Above $1,290, the price may perhaps move above $1,300 for a test of $1,350.
