All these positive developments were reflected in BNB’s price trajectory. Its weekly chart was painted green. Additionally, BNB was the top gainer last week among the top five cryptos in terms of market capitalization, registering nearly 5% week-over-week growth.
At press time, the alt was trading at $294.17. However, despite these positive developments, things might soon get darker for BNB as several of its on-chain metrics suggest a trend reversal in the coming days.
Metrics at play
BNB’s MVRV Ratio registered a decline over the last week, which is a bearish signal. Not only that, but BNB’s volume also followed a similar route and went south during the past seven days.
After marking a spike at the beginning of this month, BNB’s social volume also decreased. Thus, reflecting the diminishing interest from the crypto community in the token. However, the positive news was that BNB’s development activity managed to register an uptick lately.
On the other hand, CryptoQuant’s data revealed that things were not quite good for BNB as both its Relative Strength Index (RSI) and stochastic were in an oversold position, which shows that a price decline in the coming days could be imminent.

Despite all these negative developments, BNB’s popularity remained unharmed as it recently topped the list of most used smart contracts for the top 1000 biggest BSC whales on 6 October.

Curiously, a few market indicators were also in favor of a price plummet soon, while others supported the possibility of a continued uptrend.
For instance, BNB’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) registered a downtick and was moving toward a neutral position. Interestingly, On Balance Volume (OBV) also followed the same route and went down, both of which are bear signals, suggesting an upcoming price drop.
The reading of the MACD indicator supported the bears. Moreover, the Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Ribbon indicated that after a long tussle, the 20-day EMA finally managed to go above BNB’s 55-day EMA. The chances of a short uptick can’t be ruled out.
