Bitcoin Cash (BCH) price is approaching the long-term descending resistance line, which has been there since 2018.

While a short-term decline is probable, Bitcoin Cash is expected to eventually succeed in breaking out of this resistance line.

Long term resistance for Bitcoin Cash

The weekly chart shows that BCH moved above the previous resistance zone at $ 318, created by the 0.5 Fib retracement level of the most recent decline.

It is currently approaching the long-term descending resistance line that has been in place since August 2018. If a breakout succeeds, the next resistance zone will be found at $ 480.

Signs of weakness

The daily chart shows that BCH is moving to the ascending support line, currently found near $ 290. Although this is a bullish development, BCH is trading significantly above this line, so it still marks a significant level of correction.

However, both MACD and Stochastic oscillator are still increasing.

A similar outlook is given on the six-hour chart, showing more pronounced bearish divergence in the RSI and MACD.

Hence, BCH can drop in the short term, possibly reaching a low of close to $ 308- $ 321 (the Fib retracement level of 0.5-0.618) before resuming its upward movement and a break above the long resistance line. term.

Wave count

While the complete wave count is not fully confirmed, the movements during November and December (marked) are like a flat A-B-C corrective structure.

If true, it means that BCH has started a bullish impulse.

This would be in line with the scenario outlined above, in which BCH will drop in the short term before a breakout breakout.
