With these positive fundamentals, will the Bitcoin Cash price increase or not?
Bitcoin Cash analysis
Bitcoin Cash price has been falling since June 26. On September 25, it found support above $ 200. However, on December 16, the price broke below this support zone and at the time of writing, it was trading at $ 186.
Bitcoin Cash price is expected to start a short-term upward move towards the outlined resistance area. However, the direction of the long-term trend is still unclear.
Trader Crypto Krillin claims that the BCH price may see a slight rally at this level, but will eventually create new all-time lows until its true price is found.

BCH price has been trading in a range of 0.026 to 0.04 since July. Both resistance and support areas have been confirmed three times. Currently, the price is trading in the support area. This is very close to the all-time low of 0.024 in December 2018.

While the RSI has created bullish divergence since the beginning of the trading range, the upward sloping trendline has been recently broken and confirmed later. The daily outlook and the RSI, currently above 40, suggest that Bitcoin Cash price could continue to upward.
A short-term relief rally is very likely. The price of BCH will eventually reach the nearest resistance area at 0.028.
However, due to the absence of a trading model, it is not clear whether the price will break out of this area. Currently, it is highly likely that this is a confirmation of the area as resistance is followed by another round of discounts.
