Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis

Recently, there was a minor upside correction above the $430 level in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair traded above the $440 level as well. Moreover, there was a slight upward move above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $515 high to $422 low. However, the price failed to gain pace above the $445 and $450 levels.

There was also no proper close above the $440 level as the price struggled near the 100 hourly simple moving average. There is also a connecting bearish trend line in place with resistance at $444 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair is trading well below the $450 resistance and the 100 hourly SMA, which is a bearish sign. On the downside, the price remains at a risk of a break below $420 and $410. Below these, the price may perhaps test the $400 handle.

Above $450, the price may possibly correct towards the $468 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $515 high to $422 low.
