Bitcoin Cash Price Decline
Yesterday, we discussed how $1,480 and $1,500 levels stopped the upside move in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The price failed to move above the mentioned levels and declined sharply below $1,400. The decline was such that the price even broke the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $1,330 low to $1,495 high.
It opened the doors for more losses and there was a break below a key connecting bullish trend line with support at $1,410 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair even settled below the $1,300 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. These are bearish signs below $1,300 and it seems like the price may continue to trade lower in the short term. It is currently trading near the $1,240 level with a lot of selling pressure. If it corrects higher it could test the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1,495 high to $1,240 low.
Looking at the chart, the price may continue to accelerate declines towards the $1,200 level. Any further declines would depend how buyers react around the stated $1,200 support level in the near term.
