Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance

Yesterday, there was a sharp downside move below $1,300 in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The price even traded below the $1,240 support level and almost tested the $1,200 support. A low was formed near $1,220 before the price started an upside recovery. It moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1,490 high to $1,220 low.

It also succeeded in clearing the $1,300 resistance, but there are many barriers on the upside. There is also a short-term bearish trend line forming with resistance at $1,340 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1,490 high to $1,220 low is placed near the $1,360 level to act as a crucial resistance. In short, it seems like there is a major barrier forming near $1,340 and $1,350 resistance levels. A break and close above $1,350 may well push the price towards the 100 hourly simple moving average, which is the next resistance before $1,400.
