Moreover, the price climbed above the $211 level. However, bitcoin cash is facing a strong resistance near the $218 and $220 levels. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $218 on the 4-hours chart of the BCH/USD pair.
More importantly, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $236 high to $197 swing low is acting as a strong resistance near $218. Therefore, an upside break above the $218 and $220 levels is needed for more gains in the near term.
If there is no upside break above $220 and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours), there could be a fresh decline. An immediate support is near the $211 level, below which the price could decline towards the $206 level. Any further losses may perhaps call for more losses towards the $200 level.
