Technical Analysis and Market Entry: BNB/USDT Bulls Force Big Breakout from Narrowing Range Block 

Binance Coin
  • Binance Coin has seen a surge of buying momentum come back into play, as the bulls breakout from narrowing trading conditions.
  • BNB/USDT has jumped double digits in the session, moving to the highest levels in two weeks. 

BNB/USDT: Recent Price Behaviour

BNB has taken a significant leap to the upside at the time of writing on Wednesday, seen up some 9%. The price is heading for the biggest jump seen in a day since 18 September. It comes during a time where the bulls haven’t had any room for much upside. That has very much been the case over the past weeks since June. BNB has been falling across the last fifteen weeks, having lost as much as 62% in value. It dropped from heights of $38 in June, down to $14 in the last week, which was the lowest level hit in six months. 

The recent surge higher comes as the bulls managed to smash out from a narrowing range block formation. BNB/USDT was moving within tight trading conditions from 24 September, up until the breakout seen in the current session. It was capped to the upside at $16.50, with support cushioning the price down at $14.70. Given the breakout from the noted conditions, it allowed for a strong wave of buying pressure to come into play.

How much interest is your $USD making for ya in the bank? Convert them to $BUSD and let them start to make 10% APY for you.

Trade Recommendation

Given the recent price breakout, further moves to the north are now eyed. The desired entry would be on a retest of the breached range block, down at around $16.50. Lastly, tn terms of upside targets; $18.50, $20.00 and then $22.00. Stops to be placed just following the retest, down at $15.50.
