Bitcoin Cash Price Support
After a sharp upside move, bitcoin cash price formed a short-term top near $1,834 against the US Dollar. The price started a downside correction and declined below the $1,800 and $1,750 support levels. It also traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $1,459 low to $1,834 high. However, there are many supports on the downside above the $1,600 level.
At the moment, the price is testing the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $1,459 low to $1,834 high at $1,645. The stated $1,645 level is acting as a strong support and preventing losses. Moreover, there is a crucial bullish trend line in place with support at $1,610 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. Therefore, there seems to be a major support zone above the $1,600 level. As long as the price is above the stated $1,645 and $1,610 support levels, it could bounce back.
