Binance Coin 4-hour chart
There a couple of factors associated with Binance Coin that need to be monitored at the moment. First of all, the crypto-asset has a consistent ascending support level that will possibly assist BNB during the period of drawdowns. Secondly, over the short-term, BNB seemed to be following an ascending channel bearing bearish sentiment. With the 50-Moving Average acting as an overhead resistance on the charts, a drop under $40 looked likely over the next 24-48 hours.
The depleting trading volume was another indication of a bearish divergence, with the price rising within the pattern. The market’s traders may look at this from a shorting perspective as the immediate support at $38.5 might be tested going forward.
Market indicators were projecting a collective bearish narrative with the RSI slowly dropping down on the charts. The selling pressure was beginning to pick up more momentum too. On the question of momentum, the Awesome Oscillator or AO highlighted a neutral trend. At press time, the momentum was radically shifting towards the bears.
Finally, the MACD also completed a bearish crossover on the charts, with the orange line hovering over the blue line at press time.
