It traded close to the $1,250 support and a low was formed at $1,276. At the moment, the price is correcting higher and is trading above the $1,350 level.
It also moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1,677 high to $1,276 low. However, the price is facing a lot of sellers around the $1,475 level. It also represents a crucial pivot zone, acting as a barrier for buyers near $1,500. It was a support earlier and is now preventing gains above $1,500. The 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1,677 high to $1,276 low is also around $1,475. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $1,500 on the 4-hours chart of the BCH/USD pair.
Looking at the chart, the price is clearly facing hurdles near $1,475 and $1,500. Moreover, the 100 hourly simple moving average is also near $1,475 to prevent gains. A break above the $1,500 level could open the doors for more gains towards $1,600.
