A look at BNB’s 4-hour chart shows that its price has dipped below the $300 mark, indicating a bearish trend. At the time of this report, BNB/USD is trading at $293, which is still above its 100-day simple moving average ($263). The MACD slipped into bearish territory after BNB’s price declined below the $300 mark. If the current trend continues, then BNB/USD could drop to the next support at $280. The pair dipped to $286 earlier today, but the bulls defended the $280 support and pushed it back above the $290 mark.
If BNB establishes strong support at the $300 mark, it could target the next resistant point at $320. However, failure to form strong support at $300 could see the cryptocurrency dip to the $280 mark, allowing it to slip lower to 100-SMA point of $264.
PayPal news lifted the market
PayPal announced yesterday that it had enabled checkout services to US customers, allowing them to spend their cryptocurrencies in 26 million stores globally. The news lifted the general crypto market, with Bitcoin and altcoins enjoying excellent profits.
