Bitcoin Cash Price Decline
This past week, there was a solid rally in bitcoin cash price from the $400 support zone against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair surged above the $450 and $500 resistance levels to move into a positive zone. There was even a close above the $475 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). The price traded as high as $592 and later started a downside correction.
It corrected below the 23.3% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $424 low to $592 high. However, the downside move was protected by the $500-510 support area, which was a resistance earlier. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $424 low to $592 high also acted as a support. At the moment, there is a key contracting triangle in place with support near $510 on the 4-hours chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair is likely to make the next move soon either above $550 or below $510. Above $550, the price will most likely revisit the $600 zone.
Looking at the chart, BCH price is showing a lot of positive signs above the $500 level. As long as the stated support is intact, there could be more gains towards $580, $600 and $620.
