BCH/USD 1-hour chart
No. 5 coin is teasing a bearish flag breakdown on hourly sticks, with the hourly Relative Strength Index (RSI) flattening below the mid-line.
An hourly close below the rising trendline support at 446.58 is needed to confirm the bearish continuation pattern.
Bears would target Saturday’s low of 421.30 on a bear flag breakdown.
On the flip side, the bulls need to regain the bearish 21-hourly Simple Moving Average (HMA), in order to revive the recovery momentum.
The next resistance awaits at the horizontal 200-HMA of 461.40, above which the rising trendline resistance will be tested at 463.80.
