Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Price Analysis

At the time of press, BCH is down 3.7 percent but up 9.1 percent in the last day and week. However, this decline could turn out to be a loading zone for traders searching for better entries at a discount. At spot prices, BCH seems to have bottomed up and after sinking to $70 by mid-Dec 2018, the bounce was inevitable.

Notice that in the daily chart, candlestick arrangement point to bulls partly because of the rapid expansion of prices from $71 to above $200 by late Dec, early Jan 2019. This is very bullish for BCH and for bulls to be in charge then the break and close above $230—a vital resistance level and buy trigger line—must be broken completely with above average volumes even eclipsing those of Dec 20—289k versus 71k.

Further cementing our position is the realization that $230 is the 23.6 Fibonacci retracement level drawn between Nov-Dec 2018 losses. As it is, support is at $150 and with yesterday’s losses, buyers have a chance. On the flip side if momentum slows down and bulls fail to muster enough momentum to propel prices above $230 or Dec 28 highs, then the bear trend set in motion in Q4 2018 is strong and BCH could tumble to new lows below $100 and $71.

Otherwise, if it is successful, expect prices to surge to $400 by end of January.

Our bullish BCH/USD trade plan is as follows:

Buy: $230

Stop: $180

Target: $400
