Meanwhile, the 4-hour chart had a double roadblock near $200 and could derail further upside above $200, especially if Bitcoin [BTC] fails to reach the mid-range of $27k.
Will bulls falter at the double roadblock?
BCH bulls have jealously defended the $190 in the last few weeks. The price rejection at $220 at the end of August and subsequent pullback saw the $190 level again come to the bull’s rescue.
The $190 support has remained steady throughout the first week of September. But bulls haven’t been able to exceed $200 due to a double roadblock of 50-EMA (Exponential Moving Average), yellow, and an H12 bearish order block (OB) of $197 – $201 (white).
BCH could falter at the double roadblock if BTC fails to retest the mid-range of $27k. That could extend the short-term range formation of $190 – $200.
On the upside, the immediate target for bulls will be $211 in case of a bullish breakout. On the other hand, a drop to $179 could be feasible if a bearish breakout occurs.
Meanwhile, the RSI and CMF have remained below the threshold levels but fronted a breakout at press time. It shows improved buying pressure and capital inflows in the past few hours before press time. But a reversal could be imminent if sellers exploit the double roadblock.
Open Interest rates fluctuated
According to Coinglass, BCH’s Open Interest rates fluctuated below $250 million in early September. It underscores the wavering demand – a neutral bias in the derivatives market.

On the liquidations side, more long positions were rekt in the past one and four hours before press time.
It meant short-term bearish bias after BCH hit the roadblock. So, a reversal to the low range ($190) could materialize. Traders should track BTC movement for clear price direction.
