Analyzing price action from the short term perspective above, we can see that Bitcoin Cash had experienced a price surge where the market began at a low of $408 on September 17, 2018, and extend to a high of $590 on September 27, 2018. This was a price increase totaling 44% from low to high.

We can see that as the market placed the high it had met short-term resistance at a 1.618 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in red) priced at $578.40 before rolling over. Price action then continued to decline during September 2018 until support was found at the short term .886 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $429.

Over the past few days we can see that price action has made a small bullish run breaking above resistance provided by the short term .618 Fibonacci REtracement level priced at $477.

Moving forward, in our bullish scenario, if the buyers continue to drive the market action higher we can expect immediate higher resistance to be located at the short term .5 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $499. If the bullish pressure can continue higher we can find higher resistance at the .382 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $520.50.

If the bulls can then continue to break up above the resistance at the September high priced at $590 we can expect further higher resistance above to be located at the 1.272 and 1.414 Fibonacci Extension levels (drawn in blue) priced at $641 and $667 respectively. The last level of significant resistance to highlight is located at the 1.618 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in blue) priced at $704.

Alternatively, in our bearish scenario, if the sellers re-enter the market and drive price action lower we can expect immediate support below to be located at the .618 and .786 Fibonacci Retracement levels priced at $477 and $447 respectively. Further support located below this can then be expected at teh .886 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $429 followed by strong support in the $420 area.

The RSI is currently trading well above the 50 handle indicating that the bulls are in control of the momentum within the market. If the RSI can remain above the 50 handle we can expect this market to continue to make gains. However, it is important to notice that the RSI is reaching oversold conditions and a short-term pullback may be required before the market can climb further higher.
