Bitcoin Cash Price Support

After yesterday’s ride, bitcoin cash price faced sellers near the $1,030-1,040 resistances against the US Dollar. The price started a downside correction and declined below the $1,000 support. It also declined below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $971 low to $1,031 high. It opened the doors for a larger correction and the price dipped towards the $950 support area.

The $940-950 support area acted as a decent buy zone and protected further losses. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $971 low to $1,031 high also prevented declines. BCH price moved back above the $960 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. More importantly, there is a new connecting bullish trend line forming with support at $965 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair remains well supported on the downside around the $950 and $960 levels.

Looking at the chart, the price is clearly facing a major hurdle on the upside near $1,040. A break and close above the stated $1,040 resistance is needed for buyers to take control. On the downside, a break and close below $950 will most likely push the price back in the bearish zone.
