Bitcoin Cash Price Decline
It is turning out to be a huge bearish week for major cryptos like BTC, ETH, ETC, XRP and Bitcoin cash price. BCH price was under heavy selling pressure and failed to hold the $500 and $450 support levels against the US Dollar. It corrected once towards the $540 level from $500, but sellers appeared. Later, the price broke $500, $450 and even traded below the $400 level.
There was even a break below this week’s highlighted descending channel pattern with support at $430 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. It is clear bearish signal with the recent low at $387 as a minor support. There can be a short-term correction towards the $420 level, but upsides seem to be limited. An initial resistance is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $540 high to $387 low. The broken channel support at $420 might also act as a hurdle for buyers.
Further above $420, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $540 high to $387 low is at $460. Overall, selling rallies towards $420-440 might be considered in the short term.
