Bitcoin Cash Price Upside Hurdle

Yesterday, we saw the start of a decent recovery in bitcoin cash price from the $1340 low against the US Dollar. The price moved higher and succeeded in breaking the $1700 resistance. There was also a break above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last fall from the $2405.2 high to $1340.9 low. The current price action is positive above the $1700 level, but BCH is facing a major hurdle on the upside.

At the moment, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last fall from the $2405.2 high to $1340.9 low at $1870 is acting as a major hurdle. More importantly, this week’s highlighted crucial bearish trend line with current resistance at $1900 is preventing gains on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. Therefore, there are two major resistance for more gains – $1900 and $2000. The pair has to move past $1900 and close above $2000 to gain further upside momentum.
