As seen above, BCH price opened trading on April 1 at $701, before tumbling 37% to the local bottom of $454 on April 13. On-chain data shows that BCH miners rapidly offloading their reserves in the wake of Halving had played a critical role in that price downtrend.

But now, 10-days after the Halving, it appears that miners have switch back to accumulation mode.

Miners Have Acquired 110,000 BCH Since Halving

Between Jan 1 and April 12, Bitcoin Cash miners offloaded 2 million BCH, cutting down their reserves from 7.7 million BCH to 5.7 million BCH. But curiously, now, 10-day after the Halving, the miners now appear to have switched to accumulation mode.

The IntoTheBlock chart above shows that the miners have halted the year-long sell off  on April 12. And at the time of writing on April 24, they have added 110,000 BCH worth approximately $53.1 million to their reserves.

When a cryptocurrency halving cycle rolls arounds, strategic investors often look towards miners trading activity for insights on the asset’s short-term price prospects. Hence, this rare market trend could propel BCH price into a parabolic rally in May 2024 and beyond.

Bitcoin Cash Price Forecast: BCH undervalued at $500

Bitcoin Cash price rose as high as $500 within the daily time-frame April 24, before retracing towards $483. But if bull traders take a cue from the BCH miners $53.1 million accumulation frenzy over the last two-weeks, Bitcoin Cash price will likely enter another leg-up towards $600.

In further affirmation of this bullish forecast, the relative strength index (RSI) indicators trending at 43.61 shows that BCH is still in undervalued territories despite the 14.35% price rebound in the last 10-days.

For the bulls seize control of the Bitcoin Cash price trend as predicted, the must first scale the looming sell-wall at the $556 territory. Establishing a steady support above the key resistance level could open the doors to a $600 retest.

But on the flip side, if the bears force another downswing, BCH must hold the $393 support to avoid a widespread panic sell-off in the near-term.
