Bitcoin Cash technical analysis
Bitcoin Cash seems to be struggling with the resistance at $320. The immediate downside is protected by the ascending trendline. Further downward movement looks possible and expected to shield the bulls from immense damage is the 61.8% Fib retracement level, taken between the last drop from $367 to a low around $192.44. Other levels likely to come in handy on the downside are $280 and $260.
On the upside, the resistance at $340 has been tested severally. Breaking past this hurdle might take some time and will require immense buying power. However, once cleared, BCH is likely to find a smooth ride to $360.
