It traded below the $160 and $156 support levels. The recent decline got traction, resulting in a drop below the $150 support. However, the price found support near $146 and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). Besides, there is a crucial bullish trend line in place with support at $150 on the 4-hours chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair recovered above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $167 swing high to $146 swing low.

Therefore, a break above the $155 and $156 resistance levels is must for a fresh upward move.
