Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis
This past week, there was a major downside move below the $150 support in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair declined heavily and broke the $140 and $120 support levels. The decline was such that the price even broke the $100 support and settled below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). A new yearly low was formed at $92 and later the price started consolidating losses.
An initial resistance is near the $105 level. It is the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $145 high to $92 low. Above $105, there is a strong resistance formed near the $115-120 zone. There is also a crucial bearish trend line formed with resistance at $120 on the 4-hours chart of the BCH/USD pair.
