  • The $278 mark and its vicinity had a strong confluence of resistance levels
  • Traders can wait for a lower timeframe break in the structure downward before shorting

Binance Coin has recovered from the sharp plunge it saw in mid-December. The $250 area was expected to pose stiff resistance to the price, but the asset was able to flip $256 to support and climb higher.

This came in the wake of some short-term bullish momentum from Bitcoin. The king of crypto was able to climb past the $17k mark, and at press time stood at $17.2k. It faced resistance at $17.3k and $17.6k. A breakout past these levels could usher in another move upward across the crypto market.

There are many paths for Binance Coin going forward. A move above the bearish order block at $278 will likely see Binance Coin rise to $300 and $315. However, buyers might need to beware a fake rally past $280 before a reversal.

The other path was consolidation between $260-$280 for BNB. Like the consolidation in late December, this could give bulls time to reload ammunition before launching BNB higher. This was a more unlikely scenario, as Bitcoin faced intense resistance at $17.6k.

A more likely path was a rejection in the $275-$280 area. The swift move upward has left fair value gaps on the chart that the price could seek out. For traders to enter short positions, a move beneath $270 and a subsequent retest can offer a selling opportunity.

A move northward can force a large amount of liquidations, and traders can wait for a northward flush before assessing their options.

Bears can expect a move south to the Point of Control at $246. This was the Point of Control based on the Fixed Range Volume Profile, which also showed the $283.7 mark to be the Value Area High.

The Open Interest pointed toward discouraged long positions

On 12 December, Binance Coin began to drop from $285. On 16 December it reached the lows at $225. During this time the Open Interest was rising, to show strong bearish sentiment. However, when BNB forged its recovery back to the $280 zone, only the spot CVD was on the rise.

In fact, over the past couple of days, when BNB climbed from 260 to $280, the Open Interest has actually declined. This was indicative of discouraged longs, and pointed toward some bearishness in the market.
