- Despite the cooling from highs on Sunday, price action for BCH/USD has formed a bullish pennant pattern.
The Bitcoin Cash price cooled on Monday, seen nursing losses of 2.8% in the later stages of trading. It appears to be touted profit taking, after the chunky run observed during Sunday’s session. BCH/USD had gains over 20% over the course of that day.
This current run observed for Bitcoin Cash, is thanks to anticipation of the Bitcoin Cash hard fork next week. There were confirmations from the likes of Bitcoin.com and Binance, that both would be supporting the hard fork.
Given the cooling from the highs on Sunday, the price is moving within consolidation mode. BCH/USD has managed to gradually form a bullish pennant pattern, which is seen within several of its peers. This behaviour does suggest another breakout is near, if that being the case, eyes will be on a convincing move back above $600. Support in the near-term should be noted at $540 area.
