Bitcoin Cash has come to the fore, emerging as the highest-gainer in the top-10 as the collective market shot-up above the $120 billion-mark. The fourth-largest cryptocurrency is now head and shoulders above the rest of the coins in the market, in terms of 24-hour price increase, with a massive 7 percent price increase in a bearish market.

On 22 January, the BCH price slipped to a one-month low of $118.8, following which it saw a 10.79 percent increase as the coin’s price shot up to $131.64. The market cap of the coin surged by over $225 million in less than a day and is now valued at $2.31 billion.

Exchange dominance has also seen a re-shuffle, with the top spot being taken over by L-Bank, with a BCH trading volume of $22.52 million or 7.57 percent in the BCH/BTC trading pair. The following two spots are taken by P2PB2B in the BCH/USD and BCH/BTC trading pairs respectively.

It comes as no surprise that the one-hour BCH trend line shows a stand-out green uptick as the BCH price rapidly rose. Two prominent uptrends can be noticed, the first, larger one, stretching from $120.77 to $129.3 and the second, shorter one, extending from $127 to $130.12. Prior to the uptrends, the BCH price fell during the past weekend, indicated by the downtrend from $128.54 to $121.78.

Bitcoin Cash has skyrocketed past its immediate support level pegged at $119.94 and it is very likely to break its resistance placed at $130.49. The previous support and resistance levels of the coin were placed at $125.72 and $130.18 respectively.

The Chaikin Money Flow indicator points to a bullish market as the CMF line is above 0, indicating an inflow of money into BCH.

The Parabolic SAR shows that the coin is trading with bullish momentum as the dotted lines are aligned below the coin’s trend line.

The Awesome Oscillator confirms the above indications, as the AO line is green, showing a bullish swing to the BCH market.

Despite the positive signs in the above one-hour chart, the one-day chart indicates that post the hardfork, BCH prices are on a steep decline, indicated by the massive downtrend stretching from $626.31 in mid-November to $139.64 in January. A brief uptrend, immediately prior to the hardfork, is also noticed from $429.62 to $628.56.

Bitcoin Cash’s support level of $76.7 has long been surpassed, with the coin trading at almost double of the support figure. However, the recent increase in the BCH price is still not close to the immediate resistance level of $196.84.

The Bollinger Band points to a long-run decrease in volatility for the coin as the Moving Average line shows that the coin is trading in a marginally bearish market.

The Fisher Transform indicator shows a crossing over of the Fisher and Trigger lines, indicating a bullish Bitcoin Cash market.

The Relative Strength Index has been on the rise since the week began and is currently pegged at 43.64, up from a low of 37.34 from last week.

Conclusion:

Bitcoin Cash is currently leading the top-10 coins list in terms of short-term price increase, which is confirmed by the one-hour chart indicators, pointing to a bullish market. In the long-run, however, the coin is still fighting off the bears and is looking to break into a bullish zone, with the one-day chart indicators pointing to the same.
