Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance

Yesterday, we saw a nice upside move in bitcoin cash price above the $800 level against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair traded above the $820 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the price failed to break the $835-840 resistance area. There was also a rejection from the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $890 high to $741 low.

As a result, there was a downside reaction below the $820 support. Sellers gained momentum and there was a break below an ascending channel with support at $800 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair is now trading well below the $800 level and the 100 hourly SMA. An initial support on the downside is at $770. In the short term, the price may perhaps trade a few points higher towards $800. However, the broken support near $795-800 and the 100 hourly SMA are likely to prevent upsides.

Looking at the chart, the price is clearly at a risk of more losses as long as it is below $800. A major support on the downside is at $750. Should there be a break below this, the price could revisit the $740 swing low.
