Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis
Analyzing price action from the short term perspective above, we can see that the market has continued to retrace after placing the high at $646 on the 7th of November 2018. The market had surged from a low of $410 increasing by over 58%.
Price action has dropped below support at the short term .5 Fibonacci Retracement level (drawn in green) priced at $528 to where it is currently trading at the support provided by the 21 days EMA around the $520 handle.
Looking ahead, if the bearish pressure continues to push price action below the support at $520 we can expect immediate support below to be located at the short-term .618 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $500. This support level is supported by a downside 1.272 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in blue) and added psychological round number level support.
If the sellers continue to break below $500 we can then expect further support beneath to be located at the short-term .786 and .866 Fibonacci Retracement level priced at $461 and $437 respectively. The final level of strong support to highlight is located at the downside 1.414 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in blue) priced at $420.
On the other hand, in our bullish outline, if the buyers can regroup and start to drive price action above the resistance at $528 we can expect higher resistance to be located at the .382 and .236 Fibonacci Retracement levels (drawn in green) priced at $556 and $591 respectively.
If the buyers can continue to drive the market back above $600 we can then expect 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 final level of resistance to highlight is located at the 1.618 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in red) priced at $704.
The RSI has returned to the 50 handle which indicates that the market is in a period of indecision. If the bulls can push the RSI back above the 50 handles we could expect BCH to make another rally ahead of the fork once again.
