Binance Coin Price Prediction: BNB ready for $44.5 retest?
BNB/USD opened at $40.89 today after a rejection of further downside yesterday. Since then, Binance coin has moved lower once again as it builds momentum for further upside.
The analyst believes BNB/USD will see further upside in the upcoming days, as mentioned in our previous Binance Coin price prediction. Binance coin should see increased buying pressure as Binance – the exchange where most of BNB is traded – is no longer blacklisted in Russia. The decision to blacklist Binance was initially made in September 2020. The decision has however been revoked. As Russia continues to be a country with a lot of interest in crypto, Binance and Binance Coin should see increased interest in the upcoming weeks.
Binance Coin price movement in the last 24 hours
Binance Coin has traded in a relatively narrow range of $39.59 – $41.85 as it saw reduced volatility over the last 24 hours. Traded volume for BNB decreased by 18 percent towards $504 million, which partly explains the relatively calm price action.
Binance Coin has seen consolidation for the most part today, as it prepares for the next move. After BNB rejected the $36 – $37 support area, the market quickly moved higher and set a local high just below $42.

BNB/USD 4-hour chart – BNB ready to move towards all-time high next week?
Overall, Binance coin has had a very volatile week. After setting a new all-time high at $47 on the 18th of January, BNB had a minor retracement. Following the retracement, BNB made a move higher once again. However, a very clear rejection was seen, resulting in a several-day decline of more than 20 percent towards the $37 support.
Since then, BNB has tested the area between 50 and 100 period moving averages as a resistance. So far, it has stopped BNB from moving higher; however, this shouldn’t be taken as an indication for a potential short position.
The current closest support for BNB is still around the $36-$37 mark. If the support is broken, Binance Coin should see a prolonged bearish momentum as the support currently is the last technical level that indicates an overall bullish trend. If the $36-$37 support is broken, a new mid-term lower low would be set, and Binance Coin would be in a technical downtrend.
Alternatively, the closest major resistance is seen at the $44.5 mark, which had previously reversed the price action in a way similar to the current double top at the all-time high. If the resistance is broken, the Binance coin price prediction would become very bullish once again, as the next BNB/USD resistance of $47 should be tested shortly after.
However, if the BNB/USD moves towards the $44.5 resistance and makes a clear rejection, the analyst expects a head and shoulders pattern to be formed as a start of a much larger trend reversal.
Binance Coin Price Prediction: conclusion
Binance Coin price prediction is still bullish; however, considering that the price is currently between strong support and resistance, there is no clear trade opportunity.
Traders should wait for further price action development in the form of a retest of either the previous support around $37 or the resistance around $44.5 to achieve the best risk/reward ratio setup.
If Binance Coin can move towards the $44.5 resistance and show clear signs of rejection, a short position could offer a good risk/reward trade setup.
