Binance Coin Price Analysis


The crypto ecosystem is evolving, and so are crucial appendages that make cryptocurrency a thriving industry. Top of the list is Binance. Irrefutably the world’s largest exchange by adjusted trading volumes, the ramp is not short of controversies.

At the time of writing, BNB prices are all over the place. By printing dojis above the main support line at $30, there is an apparent weakness. On top of that, the lack of a definitive trend direction after a solid first half of 2019 is revealing of fractures.

Nonetheless, despite fragilities, the path of least resistance is northwards. However, that is mainly dependent on whether prices will oscillate above $30 or even print above June 2019 highs at the back of increasing participation.

From previous BNB/USD trade plans, any upswing above $43 could see BNB more than double to $75 in the next few months. Conversely, liquidation below $30 with a differentiating breakout candlestick buoyed by ultra-high trading volumes could mean disintegration to $25 or lower.

Technical Indicators

In light of the above, June 14 bear candlestick is leading. Any break above $43 or $30 must be with high trading volumes above 4.9 million. Depending on the breakout direction, such a distinctive bar will define the short to medium term price trajectory.
