Bitcoin Cash looked set to challenge some important price levels after rebounding from the $470-support. A crossover between the 4-hour 20 and 50 SMAs can be expected to play in favor of the bulls by offering some additional buy signals.
A close above the $550-mark would flush out sellers and help BCH develop a foothold for a rally. At the time of writing, BCH was trading at $542, up by 7% over the last 24 hours.

The Fibonacci Retracement tool was used to trace BCH’s decline from the $800-mark to a swing low of $471 to identify potential areas of reversal. A close above the 23.6% Fibonacci level would help BCH negotiate past a chunk of selling pressure and set $600 in its crosshairs. From there, an additional 6% push can develop provided the 200-SMA (green) does not impede BCH’s advance. Overall, this represented a hike of 17% from BCH’s press-time level.
If an upwards breakout at $550 is immediate denied, expect a retest of the $520-support. The confluence of the 20 and 50 SMAs could also cushion any countermeasures taken by sellers. A triple bottom would inject life back into the market in case BCH revisits the $470-mark.
Now, the RSI’s overbought nature did present some near-term hurdles. However, an advance above this upper zone can be expected as long as the index keeps above 60. Similarly, the MACD needs to avoid a bearish crossover to preserve upwards pressure in the market.
The Directional Movement Index abated any fears of an immediate reversal as long as the +DI held above the -DI.
BCH can be expected to ease slightly below the 23.6% Fibonacci level before attempting a northbound breakout. This would allow the RSI to stabilize before the next upcycle.
Bulls can look to capitalize on this advantage by pressing above $600. From the same, the 50% Fibonacci level can be challenged.
