Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance
There was no major upside recovery in bitcoin cash price above $1,220 against the US Dollar. The mentioned $1,220 level acted as a hurdle for buyers, resulting in more declines. The price declined further, settled below the $1,200 level, and broke the $1,150 support level. The recent downside break below $1,150 has opened the doors for more losses in the near term.
The decline was such that the price even broke the last swing low of $1,133. It is now well below $1,150 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It seems like the price is heading towards the 1.236 Fib extension level of the last wave from the $1,133 low to $1,315 high at $1,090. It means the price may perhaps break the $1,100 support and accelerate declines towards $1,050. If sellers remain in control, the price might test the 1.618 Fib extension level of the last wave from the $1,133 low to $1,315 high. On the upside, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $1,160 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair.
Looking at the chart, the price is clearly under a lot of bearish pressure below $1,150. However, if buyers manage to push the price above $1,150-60, it could bounce back quickly.
