BCH/USD daily chart


The 20-day Simple Moving Average (SMA 20) curve acts as immediate market resistance, while the 20-day Bollinger jaw has narrowed considerably to indicate decreasing price volatility. The Elliott Oscillator has had seven straight green sessions, while the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is trending around 36.55. The bulls will need to defend the $202.70 support line to ensure that the price doesn’t drop below the Bollinger band.
