BCH is on a strong bullish momentum, currently trading at $158. The MACD has crossed from below to above the signal line. If the momentum continues, the focus will shift to the $217, which is minor resistance. Further, $281 is the other important level that investors should keep an eye on. On the flip side, BCH could be preparing for a retracement.

The RSI indicator is at the overbought zone, a level that was last seen in March. If this is the case, $120 becomes the immediate fallback for Bitcoin Cash. If the level does not hold, the token can slide further to $92.

BCH is not a buy at the current level. The token could be preparing for a short-term retracement. Investors should watch $120 as a potential entry point and take advantage of the next bull run.
