Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis BCH Chart

There was a break below the $385.00 support and the $370.00 pivot level. However, the price stayed above the $360.00 support and the 50 simple moving average (2-hours, purple). A swing low was formed at $361.29 before the price started a fresh increase.

It climbed back above the $385.00 level and the 50% Fib retracement level of the slide from $401.48 to $361.29.  However, it seems like the $392.00 and $395.00 levels are currently acting as hurdles for the bulls.

Besides, the price is struggling to clear the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the slide from $401.48 to $361.29. There is also a connecting bearish trend line forming with current resistance near $392.90 on the same chart.

A successful break above the trend line and $395.00 is likely to open the gates for a push above the $400.00 barrier. In this case, the price could surge above the $410.00 and $415.00 levels.

Conversely, if bitcoin cash price declines again, it could find support near $375.00 or a bullish trend line on the same chart. Below the trend line support, the 50 SMA could hold losses near $370.00. Finally, a successful close below $370.00 might start a strong decline back to $350.00. Overall, BCH is placed nicely above the $375.00 support and it is likely to surge above $400.00 once again.
