BCH/USD Technical Indicators

Looking at the charts shows bulls have surpassed many people’s expectations over the course of today’s trading sessions. The 4-hour BCH/USD chart on Kraken shows that most oscillators and moving averages indicate strong bullish signals even after the parabolic upswing in the last 12 hours. The Relative Strength Index (RSI ~ 69.81) shows BCH still has room for improvement before bulls get exhausted. Stochastic (~78.58) remains impartial at press time while MACd levels continue to show bulls still have the upper hand for the time being.

The two Simple Moving Averages (SMA 100-200) still have a decent gap, with the short-term 100 well above the long-term 200 SMA. This implies the path toward bare minimum resistance is still the upside. Order books show some decent resistance holding bulls back at the current vantage point ($390 zone) and the $420 region. On the backside, bitcoin cash has some solid foundational support between the $360 area and $325 territory.

The Verdict: Development and Mainstream Acceptance Bolsters Market Optimism

Overall, the cryptocurrency outlook seems upbeat right now as most crypto assets have recorded decent gains this year. Additionally, the decentralized cryptocurrency bitcoin cash has seen a lot of interest over the last few months which has, in turn, increased the demand. Besides a momentous increase in price and global trade volume, BCH transactions per day and overall hashrate have been climbing steadily.

The Bitcoin Cash network will also be upgrading in two days and implementing the highly anticipated Schnorr signatures to the protocol. Alongside this, traditional markets like stocks have been feeling the burden of the U.S.-China trade war, which might be pushing some money toward the crypto market. Meanwhile, BCH, BTC, ETH, and GUSD managed to capture broad mainstream acceptance at over 30,000 different retailers which may also have given the bulls more encouragement.
