Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis
Two things can be gleaned from the weekly chart: First, Bitcoin Cash prices are down 95 percent from 2017 peaks. Losses are evident when we paste a Fibonacci retracement tool drawn at 2017 high low. Secondly, week ending Sep 29 is influential simply because of supply-demand dynamics. Notice that there were volume spikes and despite losses early this week, prices are steady adding roughly one percent in the last week.
Before Tuesday, BCH topped the performance chart in the top 10. From this, we can again conclude two things: One, the correction has been extensive and secondly, technical chart formation hints of a slowing bear momentum. The second conclusion is backed by Fibonacci retracement rules following the deep 95 percent retracement and two, the spike in market participation is supportive of price.
Because of the double bar bull reversal pattern and bull volumes, we have a bullish outlook and buyers can buy on dips in lower time frames. On the other hand, risk-on type of traders can wait for clean breaks and close above $600, a key resistance former support level.
In this time frame, BCH is stuck in a ranging market with caps at $600 on the upside and $400 providing strong support.
While we can base our analysis from a bear break out of early August, that stand can only be valid if there are dips below Sep 27 lows at around $410. That will confirm retest of Sep 3 and subsequent losses. However, from a top-down approach, Sep 27 increase in market participation and 2018 losses mean there is a likelihood of a reprieve as we enter Q4 2018.
As such, we recommend aggressive types to load at spot prices with stops at $450 or Aug 2018 lows with first targets at $600 and later $870. Should these stops be hit, then we shall revert back to neutral expecting losses towards $400. This shall in turn trigger sellers aiming at $300.
