Bitcoin Cash technical analysis

Bitcoin Cash is trading between the support and resistance of the moving averages. The 50-day SMA is providing support marginally below the prevailing market value while the 200-day SMA is limiting the bulls’ efforts on the upside.  The RSI shows that sideways price action is leading to consolidation after BCH failed to break the resistance at $260.

The horizontally leveling RSI also puts emphasis on the sideways action. Other areas of interest include the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement which could block movement towards $300 as well as the 23.6% Fibo, ready to function as a key support zone. An ascending trendline is also vital for the buyers in addition to levels at $220 and $200.
