Bitcoin Cash Price Decline
There were a couple of rejections noted around the $760-770 zone in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair started a downside move and declined below the $750 support. There was even a close below the $750 pivot level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. These are negative signs and suggests that the price is struggling to move above $770.
During the decline, there was a break below a key bullish trend line with support at $748 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair traded close to the $720 support and is currently trading in a range. It recently tested the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $810 high to $716 low. However, there is a strong resistance forming near the $750 level. Moreover, a bearish trend line is in place with resistance at $750. Therefore, a break above $750 is needed for a recovery in BCH.
