Our forecast

BCH/USD: At the time of writing Bitcoin cash is is grinding lower within a descending channel trading at $96.50 (down 6% overnight). The asset does not appear to have found a bottom following the volatility and declines that began after the hard fork that took place on November 15th. BCH/USD needs to recover out of the bear channel and will face resistance at both the 100 hour MA and 200 hour MA at $101 and $115 respectively.  In the immediate term buyers will need to push price back above $100 or risk a test of trend channel support towards $90, from an hourly perspective both the MACD and RSI are positive supporting further gains toward resistance around $98.
