The MACD in the 4-hour chart shows sustained bullish market momentum, while the RSI is trending in the neutral zone, indicating that the price has more room to grow. Finally, the 20-bar SMA has crossed over the 50-bar SMA to chart the bullish cross pattern.


Key price levels to watch for BCH

As you may have guessed by now, the key level to watch for BCHi s the 20-day SMA. If the buyers manage to flip this level, they should have the momentum required to enter the $300-zone.

However, repeated rejections at this level will put a lot of stress on the 50-day SMA ($270). If the price breaks below that, the bears will test the 200-day SMA ($260) for its resilience.
