Bitcoin Cash has followed a steady upward trend. However, the latest pullback propelled BCH candles to oscillate between a descending parallel channel. Completion of this pattern formation could potentially lead to a bullish breakout. A breakout to the positive side was supported by daily moving averages. 50 DMA [Pink] and 100 DMA [Blue] suffered a bearish crossover on 31st March.

Further validating the strong bullish momentum was the MACD indicator. At press time, the signal line was seen hovering below MACD, depicting a positive trend for the fork coin.

As supported by the descending channel formation, the DMAs, and the above indicator, BCH is highly likely to undergo a bullish price breakout which would prompt the coin to breach the immediate resistance level at $261.9 and $266.5, respectively as it will be firmly supported at points $248.9, and $242 by the two moving averages.
