Bitcoin Cash Price Support
There was a nice upside move in bitcoin cash price this past week from $840 to well above $1300 against the US Dollar. The price traded as high as $1380 from where a downside correction was initiated. It moved below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $840 low to $1380 high. However, the downside move was protected by the $1120 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $840 low to $1380 high also acted as a support. It seems like there is a major bullish trend line forming with support at $1190 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. The trend line support near $1200 and the 100 hourly SMA is currently preventing downsides below $1200. On the downside, the next important support is near $1040. However, before $1040, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $840 low to $1380 high near $1107 might act as a support.
Therefore, the pair is supported on the downside around $1190 and $1040. Having said that, buyers need to push the price above the $1250 level if they have to resume the uptrend. Moreover, the $1280 level is also a major hurdle in the near term.
