Meet Up in Seoul 14th June
Going back in time a little bit and starting from the meet up in Seoul which took place on the 14th of June, we’ll notice that there was no immediate action on the exchange rate. The formation of a bearish accumulation pattern later on the 21st lead to a series of consecutive bearish candles with few bullish closing bars in between.
Meet up in Toronto 12th July
Similar to the meet up in Seoul, the meet up in Toronto Canada, was this time around followed by an opposite bullish accumulation pattern on the 14th two days after the event, leading to a sudden gain in strength of the BCH.

Developers and Bitcoin cash enthusiasts are earnestly getting ready for the Bitcoin Cash hackathons which will be taking place in San Francisco and other parts of the world, with the San Francisco event taking place on October-11. Permissionless ventures will be giving an investment fund of about 10 BCH to the first place winner.
The attached daily chart shows a buildup of bearish hidden divergence which is already triggered by a dead cross of the MACD oscillator, prior to leaving clues through the bearish accumulation patterns formed.
BCH Hackathon Amsterdam 27th October
Also in the month of October, on the 27 and 28th to be precise, Bitcoin cash Devcon will be taking place in Amsterdam with events hosted in Japan, Israel, India and South Korea.
Depending on the price action pattern formed on or after the event date, the BCH may likely strengthen owing to the fact that it indicates growth of the ecosystem; on the other hand if speculators interpret it differently either through a price action breakdown, the case may be opposite.
