BCH/USD daily chart

The upward trending line has acted as a support for the market over a long period. With this Thursday’s session, the market was able to creep above the 20-day simple moving average (SMA 20) curve and enter the upper half of the 20-day Bollinger band, both being bullish signs. The moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) histogram also shows decreasing bearish momentum. The chart tells us that BCH/USD over the last few sessions has had periods of growth followed by immediate consolidation.

In order to break past this pattern, the bulls will need to garner enough momentum to break past the resistance at $137.25.
