Since December 1, Bitcoin Cash has been consolidating between $280 and $300 after the bulls failed to break the $320 resistance level. The bulls have earlier been repelled at the $360 overhead resistance.
The current downward move is a sign of bears’ superiority over the bulls. Presently, BCH has fallen above critical support at $250. If the bulls defend this critical support, the upside momentum will resume.
A strong bounce above the current support will propel BCH to rally above $280. That is, out of the bearish trend zone. Then the crypto will resume upside momentum. Otherwise, the downtrend will resume as the coin is in the bearish trend zone. Sellers may take advantage and push BCH to either $245 or $229. In the meantime, BCH is trading at $264 at the time of writing.
BCH price has broken below the support line of the ascending channel. The implication is that the crypto is likely to decline on the downside. In the same vein, the price has broken below the SMAs which suggests a downward movement of the coin. The coin is at level 45 of the Relative strength index period 14. It indicates that the coin is in the downtrend zone and below the centerline 50.
