Traders should expect the Bitcoin Cash price to continue moving downwards as the bears dominate the markets and the selling pressure continues to rise. As the price falls, the nearest support level lies at the $450 mark; however, the high selling pressure suggests that the support level will not hold, and the Bitcoin Cash price will continue falling. 

As such, traders should expect the price to fall to the $450 mark before recovering. The price action may defend the $470 support level, however, the strong selling pressure would mean further consolidation at the level without any movement above the $500 mark.
