Binance Coin’s [BNB] press time level was a good position for trend players. Notably, BNB faced correction after hitting the bearish order block of $339.6, giving sellers a good reason for entry.

Will the support hold?
The support zone of $315 – $320(cyan) is a bullish order block on the daily timeframe. The level was a crucial support in late March before it was flipped to resistance on 27 March. It maintained its position as a resistance level for three weeks before it was flipped again to support on 11 April.
In the second half of April, the level was retested thrice as support, ending with price rejections near the bearish order block of $339.6. If the trend repeats, a fourth retest could inflict another price reversal and rally toward $339.6.
It is worth noting that the ascending trendline resistance also aligns with the level and could offer more resistance to sellers. However, an FVG (fair value gap) zone between $332 – $334 (white) may offer slight resistance to a likely recovery.
A close below the confluence area could set BNB to aggressive selling, especially if BTC drops below $27k. But the plunge could ease near $309 or $300. Meanwhile, RSI and OBV retreated lower, reiterating that the buying pressure dipped.

However, in the past four hours before press time, liquidations stood at $32k for longs and $25k for shorts, as per Coinglass data. It shows the gap closing faster and could signal a possible reversal.
However, investors should track BTC price movement and overall sentiment amidst the ongoing FOMC meeting before making moves.
