Bitcoin Cash Price Support
There were choppy moves in BCH price this past week as it moved above the $700 level against the US Dollar. After a decline towards the $530 level, there was a correction initiated. The price moved above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $640 high to $530 low. However, the upside move was limited by the $750 resistance zone.
The price failed near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $640 high to $530 low. After the failure, the price started a declining path and currently trading below the $660 support area. There is a contracting triangle pattern forming with support at $600 on the 4-hours chart of BCH/USD. There are high chances that the pair would break the triangle support at $600 and move down. As long as the pair is below the triangle resistance at $650, it is at risk of a downside break.
Once there is a break, the pair could trade towards the $530 low. Alternatively, if buyers come into the action and manages to take the price above $650, there can be a retest of $740. It all depends on the upcoming break either below $600 or above $650.
