Issued by the global exchange Binance, the Binance coin (BNB) was initially launched on the Ethereum blockchain before migrating to Binance’s own smart chain. It works as a utility token, with discounted trade on Binance, as a tool to invest in Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) on its Launchpad program, and is accepted as payment in certain service providers.

After a rally to around $700 in May this year, BNB formed a series of lower lows for weeks, eventually dropping to about $250. That Binance has been subject to regulatory hurdles in multiple territories recently hasn’t helped its cause. However, with increasing crypto adoption and volume, demand for BNB is increasing once again.

Chart-BNB (2)
BNB bounced off an important trendline support yesterday, its 50-day EMA, signaling a bullish move ahead. This support acts as a lower trendline for both ascending channel and ascending wedge formation. BNB needs to break and stay above trendline resistance levels at $347 and $363, while enjoying support on lower levels at $317 and $305.

BNB seems to be in the accumulation zone in the daily time frame while attempting to break out of the $342-$363 resistance zone. A daily close above this zone can generate a strong bullish confirmation, while a close below the trendline will provide a bearish outlook that could possibly send BNB to below its recent bottom.

Major Levels
Support: $301, $252, $223
Resistance: $363, $410, $453

Time is in UTC and the daily time frame is 12:00 AM – 12: 00 PM UTC
