Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis

Recently, there was a strong recovery in bitcoin, ripple, Ethereum, and bitcoin cash against the US Dollar. Earlier, the BCH/USD pair traded below the $125 and $124 support levels. There was even a close below the $125 support and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). However, the $120 support area acted as a strong buy zone and prevented further losses. Finally, the price started a solid rebound and broke the $125 and $128 resistance levels. There was also a spike above the $132 resistance and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).

A swing high was formed near $133 and the price started consolidating gains. It seems like there is a strong resistance formed near the $132-134 resistance zone. The price recently dipped below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $120 swing low to $133 high. However, the $125 support area acted as a strong hurdle for sellers. It also represents the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $120 swing low to $133 high.

It seems like there is a major declining channel is in place with resistance at $132 on the 4-hours chart of the BCH/USD pair. A clear break above the channel resistance and $133 is needed for buyers to gain traction. The next key resistance is near the $138 level, which was a strong support earlier. If buyers push the price above $138, the next stop could be near the $145 level.
