Bitcoin Cash Sits on Strong Support  

Bitcoin Cash price flashed a buy crypto signal earlier today on the four-hour chart when the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator crossed above the signal line. The trend-following indicator sent a signal for traders to buy the asset showing that buyers are still in control of BCH.

The movement of the MACD above the zero line into the positive region will add validate the bullish outlook indicating that the bullish momentum is unstoppable.

From the 12-hour chart, BCH seems to be sitting on strong support downwards. For example, Bitcoin Cash has just flipped the 50-day SMA from resistance to support at $504. Even if the asset goes below this level, the immediate support at $474 is a major anchor zone that can prevent the price from slipping back to the July 20 low at around $383.

On-chain metrics from the “In/Out of the Money Around Price” (IOMAP) model by IntoTheBlocks validates that Bitcoin Cash is currently sitting on a strong support. Based on this indicator, there is significant  support between the $501 and $514 range filled by approximately 307,000 addresses who previously bought roughly 307,000 BCH. Note that the BCH’s immediate support coinciding with the 50-day SMA at $504 is within this range and must be defended to sustain the bullish momentum.

Even if this support zone doesn’t hold, the next support zone between $484 and $501 may be robust enough to counter any selling pressure.

On the flip side, the same IOMAP model shows that there is no significant barrier that curtail BTC’s upward surge. According to the metrics, there is minor resistance between $518 and $531 where about 268,000 investors previously purchased around 124,000 BCH. These may have the ability to absorb some buying pressure as some sellers could seek to break-even at this range.

BCH Could Reach These Levels?

If bulls are able to slice through the resistance level at $523, Bitcoin Cash is likely to climb to the $600 psychological level and beyond.
