Binance Coin Price Prediction: BNB to continue to move sideways
At the time of writing, BNB trades at $41.5 and has a strong resistance around the $41.5 area. BNB/USDT opened at $41.87 earlier today after further upside yesterday.
The move is a continuation of several day rallies after a strong rejection at the beginning of the week. The rejection earlier this week caused a loss of over 20% on the 10th and 11th of January. However, the Binance Coin rejected further downside as soon as the $35 level was reached. Therefore, we can expect the overall uptrend to continue as long as this level is respected.
A clear ascending trendline is still in place. It was confirmed by a third touch when the BNB made a move from $45 to $35. As long as BNB does not move below it, the current several-week momentum is set to continue.
Binance Coin price movement in the last 24 hours
The price of Binance Coin has increased by 1.1 percent over the past 24 hours. The price currently trades close to yesterday’s close, and some volatility can be seen as minor rejections for both further upside and downside are made.
Binance Coin currently trades in a range of around $41-42. Until a clear break away from this area is made, further sideways is expected today.

BNB/USDT 4-hour chart – price ready to rise further?
The next major resistance for BNB can be seen around $45. A new yearly high was set around this level last week. After a retest of the $45 resistance, a double top was made, indicating strong selling pressure around this area.
If BNB breaks above the current consolidation, a further 6-8% move to the upside can be expected in the upcoming 24 hours. If the $45 area is reached, traders should pay close attention to what happens next.
Another key level to watch is the $40 level. BNB could retest it over the weekend, and it would likely cause a consolidation that could last several days. The market would likely remain as such till it approaches the previously mentioned ascending trend line. However, if BNB/USDT moves below the $40 support and ascending trend line, the current uptrend would collapse, and spend several months in a downtrend once again.
Binance Coin Price Prediction: conclusion
As BNB/USDT has continued to move sideways for the past 24 hours, a clear direction for the market cannot be made. However, BNB moved higher for the past few days, which would mean another short-term pullback would be healthy for the market structure.
A critical level to watch right now is the $41.5 resistance. When the price moves away from it, BNB will likely move towards the $45 yearly high or the $40 local support.
Binance Coin is still among the best performing crypto exchange tokens as Binance is still one of the top exchanges globally.
