Top 3 Coins to Watch Today: BCH, ICP, GALA – April 8 Trading Analysis

Let’s take a closer look at today’s altcoins showing breakout signals. We’ll explain what the coin is, then dive into the trading charts and provide some analysis to help you decide.

1. Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

Bitcoin Cash BCH is a peer-to-peer electronic cash system that aims to become sound global money with fast payments, micro fees, privacy, and high transaction capacity (big blocks). In the same way that physical money, such as a dollar bill, is handed directly to the payee, Bitcoin Cash payments are sent directly from one person to another. As a permissionless, decentralised cryptocurrency, Bitcoin Cash requires no trusted third parties and no central bank. Unlike traditional fiat money, Bitcoin Cash does not depend on monetary middlemen such as banks and payment processors.

BCH Price Analysis

At the time of writing, BCH is ranked the 26th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$336.47. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

March marked a turning point for BCH, with the price rocketing up almost 45% from its lows to probable resistance beginning near $386.22.


The price is currently struggling with the area between $365.43 and $329.76. This region could provide support after a close above – or resistance after a close below. 

A retracement could reach into the daily gap and possible support around $340.33. A more bearish shift in the marketplace will likely aim for the relatively equal lows near $336.21, and the potential support just below that begins around $330.64.

Continuation to the upside will likely target the monthly high near $375.30. However, probable resistance beginning at $390.55 and $420.05 could cap or slow down this move.

2. Internet Computer (ICP)

The Internet Computer ICP is the world’s first blockchain that runs at web speed with unbounded capacity. It also represents the third major blockchain innovation, alongside Bitcoin and Ethereum – a blockchain computer that scales smart contract computation and data, runs them at web speed, processes and stores data efficiently, and provides powerful software frameworks to developers. By making this possible, the Internet Computer enables the complete reimagination of software, providing a revolutionary new way to build tokenised internet services, pan-industry platforms, decentralised financial systems, and even traditional enterprise systems and websites.

ICP Price Analysis

At the time of writing, ICP is ranked the 36th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$19.16. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

During March, ICP also turned the corner, breaking a key swing high. This move could suggest a longer-term bullish trend.

The swing high near $26.24 stands out as a bullish target and marks an area of probable resistance. Further continuation could reach into possible resistance starting near $30.12.

Even if the bearish trend continues, a stop run at the recent swing low near $17.15 into possible support beginning near $16.50 is reasonable. If the price reaches further down, the swing low and possible support near $15.70 might provide another downside target. 

The area near $14.55 could also provide support. However, a drop this far could suggest a stop run below the higher-timeframe relatively equal lows near $13.79 into possible support beginning around $12.90.

3. Gala (GALA)

GALA aims to take the gaming industry in a different direction by giving players back control over their games. Gala Games’ mission is to make “blockchain games you’ll actually want to play”. The project wants to change the fact that players can spend hundreds of dollars on in-game assets and countless hours playing the game, all of which could be taken away from them with the click of a button. It plans to reintroduce creative thinking into games by giving players control of the games and in-game assets with the help of blockchain technology.

GALA Price Analysis

At the time of writing, GALA is ranked the 67th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$0.2259. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

After setting a low last week, GALA kicked off a recovery trend to break the new monthly highs.

The following 55% plummet found support near $0.2076, sweeping under the 40 EMA into the 59.8% retracement level before bouncing to resistance beginning at $0.2430.

This area could continue to provide resistance, possibly causing a retracement to the 9 EMA and 18 EMA near $0.2712, where aggressive bulls might begin bidding. The level near $0.2950, which has confluence with the 40 EMA, may see more interest from bulls loading up for an attempt on probable resistance beginning near $0.3285. 

However, if Bitcoin continues its sideways trend, much lower prices could be seen. The old support near $0.1980 could provide at least a short-term bounce. If this level fails, the old highs near $0.1754 might also give support and see the start of a new bullish cycle after retesting these support levels.
