Last week, the price of Bitcoin Cash underwent huge appreciation. However, with markets trading flat and the original Bitcoin trading at its lowest volatility of 2018, Bitcoin Cash is also undergoing a tight consolidation this week. Bitcoin Cash exploded from around $450 to approximately $570 last week on news of Bitmain filing for its IPO. It has since retraced to close to $530 and has priced in doji candle yesterday with another forming today.

A doji candle represents indecision in the market and could be representative of a turning point in the markets where traders are unsure whether to be bullish or bearish. The MACD for Bitcoin Cash is diverging to the upside which is indicative of buyer momentum, but this could easily be the case of movement based on the large appreciation from last week. A more bullish sign is that the RSI is forming higher highs and higher lows which is a sign of an uptrend.
