Looking at the 2-hour chart of BCH/USD, the pair made two attempts to climb above $440.00, but it failed. As a result, the pair started a downside correction and traded below the $430.00 and $422.00 support levels.
There was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $371.16 low to $439.68 high. Moreover, there was a break below a key bullish trend line at $428.00.
The price even broke the $410.00 support and the 25 simple moving average (2-hours). It tested the $400.00 support area and stayed above the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $371.16 low to $439.68 high.
Recently, there was a recovery, but the price failed to surpass the $420.00 level. It traded below a bearish continuation pattern with support at $412.00 on the same chart, opening the doors for more losses.
Therefore, if there is a downside break below the $405.00 and $400.00 support, the price could start a fresh decline towards the $385.00 or $380.00 level.
Conversely, if bitcoin cash stays above $400.00, it could climb higher once again. An initial resistance is near the $420.00 level, above which the price might revisit the $440.00 resistance.
