Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis
Yesterday, we discussed that bitcoin cash price may slide further towards $125 against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair did trade lower after it broke the $150 and $145 support levels. The decline was such that the price even broke the $130 level and traded close to $125. It is now positioned well below the $140 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
The recent low was formed near $126 and the current price action suggests more gains. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $158 swing high to $126 low. More importantly, there is a major declining channel formed with resistance near $135 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair is very unlikely to trade above the $135 and $140 resistance levels in the short term. Above $140, the next resistance is the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $158 swing high to $126 low. On the downside, a close below the $125 level could push the price towards $110 or $100.
Looking at the chart, BCH price is clearly in a significant downtrend below $150. It is likely to slide further towards $120, $110 or $100.
