Bitcoin Cash Price Could Reverse Gains
This past week, bitcoin cash price broke the main $225 support level to start a sharp decline. BCH even traded below the $215 support level and settled well below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
It tested the $205 support and remained well bid above the $200 handle. As a result, the price started an upside correction above the $215 and $220 levels. It is now trading near a major resistance at $225 (the recent breakdown zone).
The 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $245 swing high to $205 low is also acting as a resistance near $225. More importantly, there is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $230 on the 4-hours chart of the BCH/USD pair.

The trend line is close to the 100 simple moving average (4-hours) and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $245 swing high to $205 low. Therefore, the bulls need to clear the $225 and $230 resistance levels to start a steady increase.
If they succeed and the price settles above $230, there could be a decent upward move towards the $245 resistance level in the coming sessions.
