Bitcoin Cash price analysis
The past few days were very bearish on bitcoin cash as it declined heavily after forming a top near the $840 level. BCH/USD collapsed and dropped more than $250 during the past few days.
The 4-hours chart of BCH/USD indicates that the price followed a declining pattern from well above the $800 level and declined below the $750, $700, $680 and $650 support levels.
The decline was such that the price even broke the $600 support area. More importantly, there was a break below a declining channel with support near $640 on the 4-hours chart.

At the outset, the price is correcting higher and is testing the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the last downward move from the $716.84 swing high to $566.63 low.
Should the price correct above the $600 and $605 resistance levels, it could spike towards the $625 level. However, the price is likely to face a strong resistance near $625, the broken channel, and $641.
The $641 resistance represents the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last downward move from the $716.84 swing high to $566.63 low. Therefore, upsides in bitcoin cash price above $610 are likely to be capped by the $625 and $641 resistance levels.
