Bitcoin cash price is facing many resistances near $216 against the US Dollar. BCH/USD could tumble below $210 if it continues to struggle near $216.

Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis

After a steady decline, bitcoin cash price found support near the $210 level against the US Dollar. BCH price traded as low as $209 and recently started an upside correction.

It broke the $213 level, and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last key decline from the $227 high to $209 low. However, the price seems to be facing a strong resistance near the $216 and $218 levels.

Similarly, bitcoin is struggling to gain momentum above the $7,400 resistance area and Ethereum is finding it hard to continue higher above $152.

On the upside, BCH seems to be struggling near the $216 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last key decline from the $227 high to $209 low is near the $218 level.

More importantly, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $215 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. Therefore, an upside break above the $216 and $218 resistance levels is must for bullish continuation.

The next set of resistances is near the $225 level. An intermediate resistance is near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last key decline from the $227 high to $209 low at $220.

On the other hand, the price could fail to surpass $216 and $218. In the mentioned case, the price is likely to retest the $210 support area. Any further losses may perhaps lead the price towards the $200 support area.
