BCH/USD hourly chart


No. 5 coin is ranging in a descending channel, with bears likely to retain control so long as the price stays below 21-hourly Simple Moving Average (HMA) at 231.02.

In absence of any substantial supports, the spot risks further falls. The next support is directly seen at the channel trendline support of 220.94. An hourly close below the latter will validate the channel formation, with the prior downside momentum likely to continue.  

On the flip side, if the bulls manage to regain the 21-HMA, the next resistance awaits at the bearish 50-HMA, 233.80. Buyers will accelerate control driving the pair to test the pattern trendline resistance at 237.12.

All in all, the intraday outlook remains bearish, also as the hourly Relative Strength Index (RSI) points south below the midline.
