Moreover, the price traded below a major bullish line with support near the $480.00 level. Later, BCH even settled below the $440.00 level and the 25 simple moving average (2-hours).
The decline was such that the price tested the main $400.00-410.00 support area. A swing low was formed at $408.55 and the price is currently correcting higher.
An initial resistance is near the $430.00 level plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $515.98 high to $408.55 low. If the price recovers above the $430.00 resistance area, there is a chance of an increase towards the key $460.00 resistance.
The mentioned $460.00 level was a support earlier and now it could act as a strong resistance. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $515.98 high to $408.55 low is also near the $460.00 level.
On the downside, the main support is near the $400.00-410.00 area. If bitcoin slides below $11,000, there are high chances that BCH/USD could break the $400.00 support level and extend losses in the near term.
