Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance
As we discussed yesterday, there were further declines in bitcoin cash price below $1460-1450 against the US Dollar. The price declined below the $1400 handle as well to test the $1300-1280 support area. A low was formed at $1280.8 from where the price started an upside correction. It has moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1610 high to $1280 low.
However, any further gains are likely to be capped by resistances such as $1450, $1475 and $1500 in the near term. An immediate resistance is around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1610 high to $1280 low at $1445. Above $1445, the $1450 level and a new connecting bearish trend line with resistance near $1475 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD are likely to prevent upsides. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1610 high to $1280 low is around $1484 to act as a major hurdle.
Therefore, it seems like there are many resistances on the upside toward $1500. As long as the price is below the $1500 level, it remains in the bearish zone.
