Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance
There were continuous declines in bitcoin cash price from the $960 swing high against the US Dollar. The price broke the $950 and $900 support levels to set the pace for more losses. More importantly, the price settled below the $900 level and is currently well below the 100 hourly simple moving average. It recently traded as low as $867 and it may correct a few points in the short term.
An initial resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $990 swing high to $867 low. Moreover, there is a key connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $910 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The same resistance area is positioned around the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $990 swing high to $867 low. Therefore, the price may continue to face sellers if it moves higher from the current levels towards $900 and $910.
