  • BCH/USD has gained over 22% in recent 7 days.  
  • The upside may be limited due to technical correction.  

Bitcoin Cash (BCH), the sixth largest coin by market value, is changing hands at $156.23. The coin has gained 1.2% since this time on Wednesday, though it is still 6% lower from the recent high touched at $166.53 on March 18. Bitcoin Cash has a capitalization of $2.8B and an average daily trading volume $376M.    

On the intraday level, BCH/USD is supported by SMA100 (1-hour) currently at $156.49. Once it is cleared, the downside is likely to gain traction with the next bearish target $152.90 (Wednesday’s low) followed by psychological $150.00. Meanwhile, a sustainable move lower will open up the way towards $147.50 (SMA50, 4-hour) and $146.70 (SMA200, 1-hour).  

On the upside, the major short-term target is $160.00, followed by the recent high at $166.53. The ultimate bullish target at this stage is $170.00; however, the move towards that area seems less likely considering flat intraday RSI and an extended consolidation below recent highs.
