BNB Price Analysis

BNB Daily Chart for June 19

From the daily chart, the path of least resistance is southwards.

The coin is down 30% from April highs and that sets the BNB within a bear breakout formation after slipping below $270 and March 2023 lows. At spot rates, the coin is trading at around 2023 lows.

Technically, bears are in control, and every attempt higher below $220, or June 10 high, presents an opportunity to unload.

This preview is valid from volume analysis since the recent leg up towards $260 is with relatively low trading volumes. Therefore, unless there is a sharp drive above $260, every high may offer entries for sellers targeting $220 or June low.

Any drop below this line may trigger more sell-offs toward $220 or lower.

Conversely, a sharp breakout with expanding volumes above $260 may see BNB retest $270 and even recover in the days ahead.
