BCH/USD: Technical picture

On the intraday charts, BCH/USD recovery is capped by the upper line of the 1-hour Bollinger Band at $254.25. This local barrier may slow down the upside move of the coin, but once it is out of the way, the next resistance of $258.00 and $260.00 will come into focus. This area includes the weekend high and the psychological barrier, which means, the bulls might have need some time to push to 200-day SMA at $273. The price has been moving below this MA since March 9, and tried to break it on several occasions, which makes it a strong hurdle on the way to $300.00.

On the downside, the middle line of the 1-hour Bollinger Band at $249.00 serves as local support. It is closely followed by a 50-hour SMA at $248.50. If the price moves below this barrier, the sell-off may be extended towards 100-hour SMA at $243.00 and psychological $240.00. The critical short-term support is created by 200-hour SMA and 50-day SMA at $235.40. Considering the downward-looking RSI on the 1-hour chart, the short-term correction looks likely; however, the recovery is on track as long as the price stays above $235.00
