In order to predict how long the decrease will last, we will analyze the price alongside the RSI and the MACD below:
As stated above, the Bitcoin Cash price (BCH) reached a high on Apr 3. Similarly, the RSI and the MACD did the same.
However, while the price has reached several higher highs, the RSI and the MACD have generated lower values.
This is known as bearish divergence and often precedes price decreases.
The level of divergence is very significant and occurring in both indicators. Furthermore, the MACD has made a bearish cross and is falling down. In the case of the RSI, the divergence is also present in longer time-frames.
The use of these indicators makes it likely that the Bitcoin Cash price will continue to decrease towards the support line.
One support and resistance areas for BCH/USD are traced below:
The closest support area is found near $330. It coincides with the support line of the channel. We believe that the price will soon reach this area. The lack of significant support between current prices and this area makes a rapid drop possible.
The closest resistance area is found near $440. It is a very significant area created by the lows of Sep and Oct 2018. Combined with the significant long-term divergence, this makes it very unlikely that the Bitcoin Cash price (BCH) will move above this area in the near future.
