Bitcoin Cash technical picture

Looking at the 15-mins chart for BCH/USD trading pair lacks the momentum to correct higher with the upside immediately limited by the 50 SMA 15-mins and the 21 Exponential Moving Average (EMA) 15-mins. Besides, the trendline resistance is key to the upside movement and a break above this level would bring the focus on $420 levels and further open the road towards $500.

On the downside, the 100 SMA 15-mins is immediately supporting the price. If BCH/USD losses clear this level, $410 is in line of support in addition to $405 and $400.
