BCH/USD Technical Indicators

Looking at the 4-hour BCH/USD chart on Kraken shows foundational support is holding up and bears have been struggling to bring the price down below the $380 region. Right now most oscillators are showing buy and neutral signals while most moving averages are indicating sell signals. For instance, the two Simple Moving Averages (SMA), both long term (200 SMA) and the short term (100 SMA) trendlines, have crossed paths. The longer-term 200 SMA is above the 100 SMA indicating the path toward the least resistance is the downside. However, the Relative Strength Index (RSI ~35.53) is impartial at the moment and the Stochastic reveals similar findings.

The MACd (~2.93), the momentum oscillator that subtracts the longer-term moving average from the shorter-term moving average, shows bulls could spring back and bring prices back up. Looking northbound at order books, however, shows that there’s tough resistance around the $400 region and the $425-440 zones as well. On the backside, there’s still decent support around the $380 area and some more support between the $340-360 range.

The Verdict: Crypto Analysts Still Bullish Despite the Recent Drop in Value

Most cryptocurrencies have done incredibly well throughout the month of May gaining between 40-80% in a mere 30 days. Although some skeptics believe a pullback is on the cards and Bloomberg analysts report that BTC/USD charts show the GTI Vera Convergence-Divergence indicator has shown a sell signal not seen in over two months. Because of this, the analysts believe prices may reverse toward the downside throughout June. Then there’s been rumors that the Facebook coin whitepaper will be published on June 18 and crypto enthusiasts don’t know what to expect from this launch. Still, some analysts believe that June will be a very bullish month for BTC and cryptocurrency markets in general and that the Facebook coin launch will be a catalyst. Market researcher Naeem Aslam is convinced that June will be a very good month for the digital asset space.

“I am optimistic about the bitcoin price during this month and I believe the Facebook event will be the catalyst for the bitcoin price to move higher,” Aslam remarked on June 7.
