A history of the Bitcoin community over the last few years and how this day came to be. It's absolutely worth your time to read all of it, all the links, and make up your mind as to where you want to stand at this stage of history.
I will admit that my estimate in entry points was completely wiped out by tremendous momentum. As of writing, South Korean was $557MM today for Bitcoin Cash , whereas Bitcoin Core was $266MM on HitBTC and $152MM on Bitfinex. If you think about the implications of this as the November fork drama approaches...
The advice that I will give you to you on Bitcoin Cash is most simple: do not short Bitcoin Cash .
Why? It is a tiny bull that has yet to grow into its full form. Think those little sponge animals that when you throw them into water, poof. Shorting Bitcoin Cash is a fantastic way to get a call from your good friend margin.
The $500 mark is a big mark as it represents both a former point of resistance and the return above a historical downtrend line.
If it breaks through that, next target is $549 previous resistance, which I would assume would be smashed through, and then after that $730.
When to buy? Buy a dip. Make sure you have strong hands. It _will_ dip. It _will_ retrace. Just keep in mind when bull runs are very manic, they can go up in a straight line for a long time with very few retracements. This is the benefit of strong hands. Frankly, buying a breakout is fine too.
Remember, in people's minds, and in reality, this is something that is very very much Bitcoin and is still selling for $400-$500 while Core is selling for $6,000. Once this hits a more feverish pitch, the fib uptrace lines are going to be smashed through as the blue (green) candles are straight lines.
Segwit2X have been moving on HitBTC at $1,000 today: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/segwit2x/#markets. Bitcoin Cash as it stands today is worth tremendously more than Segwit2x with what it has, where it came from, and the fact it has first-mover advantage against other forks.
Think about it.
But right now you can build a position at 460 and decide to add to it if it continues to drop and a fresh breakout above $500 is a good time to add as well.
$500 is major resistance though, but keep in mind _very_ bullish movements will have limited pullbacks.
Analysis is only analysis and you have to always keep an eye on price action, decide your risk versus reward, how much you are willing to lose, how long you can tolerate being in drawdown, etc.
Also, remember when I said you may need strong hands? Think about all the people that held Bitcoin when it bubbled originally at $280 and then fell to $60. How hard was that? Yet those who did are now millionaires. It doesn't come easy.
As you can see from the chart it looks like we have a valid correction wave count with support being found at the critical support line.
Bull run may take a few days to a few weeks to continue upwards. It may also continue upwards tomorrow. It's very difficult to say.
In any event, as it stands now, you are trading with the trend by entering long positions at dipped prices and stronger hands will prevail.
Bitcoin is a mighty bull. Ask any cowboy how hard it is to stay on the back of one for 8 seconds.

Buying the bottom and selling the top is extremely overrated. It's much more important to enter positions in the right direction and manage your risk. Patience is a fantastic trait.
