Bitcoin Cash Price Trend
There was a strong buying interest emerged around the $770 level in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair started an upward move and jumped above the $800 resistance. The move was strong as the price settled above the $825 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Later, BCH buyers got into action and pushed the price above the $840 and $850 resistance levels.
The price traded as high as $877 and is currently consolidating gains. An initial support is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $772 low to $877 high. If the price extends its correction below the $850 level, it could trade towards the $840 support. However, a key support sits near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $772 low to $877 high. Below this, the 100 hourly SMA is a strong support near the $810 level.
