Binance Coin [BNB] has been in a downtrend since the latter half of April. Following the rejection from $350, the sellers have assumed the driving seat and the bearish trend of Bitcoin [BTC] has solidified in recent weeks. The final days of April saw high volatility, but the price action has settled since then.
Realistic or not, here’s BNB’s market cap in BTC’s terms
At the time of writing, Binance Coin’s prices were perched precariously above the $300 support level. It was a psychological as well as technical level of significance. However, the short-term momentum was in favor of the sellers.
The bullish order block was defended so farBased on the move down from $350 to $301.4, a set of Fibonacci retracement levels was drawn. It showed the 23.6% retracement level at $312.9. Interestingly, Binance Coin has oscillated between $315 and $300 since 9 May, forming a short-term range.
This range formation came after a bullish order block on the 6-hour chart was tested. In a previous report, this zone was highlighted as critical for the bulls, but they have not yet managed to push prices higher. On the contrary, the sellers continued to dominate the market.
The outlook for Binance Coin was more bearish at press time. The lower timeframes showed a rise in selling pressure. The LTF support at $309 was also flipped to resistance. The RSI remained below neutral 50, and a move south would likely take BNB to $290 and $271.4. Such a move could be initiated if Bitcoin saw a wave of selling next week.
