  • BCH buyers face strong resistance at $282.50 in the path back to $300.
  • Bitcoin Cash has a healthy support barrier at $262.50 to cap the downside.

Bitcoin Cash went up from $208 on September 23 to $276 on October 24. Following this move, the bulls and bears have engaged on a tug of war for control over the market, with the price jumping up and down. At the time of writing, the Bitcoin fork is trading for $268. The MACD shows that the market momentum was about flip from bullish to bearish, but BCH/USD has settled down, as bulls still have the edge.

Can the bears do any damage?

While the overall outlook looks bullish, the bears can still cause severe damage if they can take control. The first support wall that they will face is at $267. Upon taking control of that zone, they will have the freedom to take the price down to $262.50, where they will encounter a strong barrier between $261.50-$262.50. This zone should be strong enough to absorb a large amount of selling pressure. However, a break below here could be fairly alarming since the next viable support is at the 50-day SMA ($257).

Key price levels to watch

Bitcoin Cash has strong resistance at $282.50 before it makes a foray into the $300 zone.

However, if the bears take control and manage to break below the $267 support, they should struggle to go below the $261.50-$262.50 barrier.
