As per knowledge supply OnChainFX, bitcoin money (BCH) has appreciated 9 % within the final 24 hours. The cryptocurrency is strongly bid above $2,700, but continues to be down 35 % from its document excessive of $four,330 set on Dec. 20.

In the course of the bitcoin rally from Sep. 15 low to November highs, BCH witnessed a sell-off to $400. Additionally, as bitcoin (BTC) neared the $20,000 mark in December, buyers started diversifying into the "small cap" cryptos like bitcoin money.

Thus, to some extent, BCH has an inverse relationship with bitcoin. And with BTC on the rise again, the BCH/BTC chart signifies that bitcoin money is more likely to underperform its rival within the short-run.

  • The rally following a bullish falling channel breakout (on Dec. 19) ran out of steam at BTC zero.25.
  • During the last one week, zero.20 has acted as a robust resistance.
  • A bearish crossover between the 5-day and 10-day shifting averages was confirmed on Dec. 28. At press time, the shifting averages are descending (favoring the bears).

Therefore, bitcoin might achieve an higher hand within the short-run – i.e. BCH/BTC might drop to zero.15 and potential to zero.10 within the short-term.

  • BCH re-entered a falling channel on Dec. 30 and costs might transfer again above the falling channel hurdle this week.
  • The bearish crossover between the 5-day and 10-day shifting averages was confirmed on Dec. 27. The 10-day MA appears to have shed the bearish bias, however the 5-day MA continues to be sloping downwards in favor of the bears.


  • Bitcoin money might revisit $2,zero50 (Dec. 30 low) and should prolong losses to the falling channel help of $1,850.
  • Solely an in depth (as per UTC) above $2,800 would abort the bearish view.
