Can the bears do any damage?

While the overall outlook looks bullish, the bears can still cause severe damage if they can take control. The first support wall that they will face is at $267. Upon taking control of that zone, they will have the freedom to take the price down to $262.50, where they will encounter a strong barrier between $261.50-$262.50. This zone should be strong enough to absorb a large amount of selling pressure. However, a break below this could be fairly alarming since the next viable support is at the 50-day SMA ($257).

Key price levels to watch

Bitcoin Cash has strong resistance at $282.50 before it makes a foray into the $300 zone.

However, if the bears take control and manage to break below the $267 support, they should struggle to go below the $261.50-$262.50 barrier.
