BNB/USD – Bulls Set Fresh 2020 Highs At $32.57
Key Support Levels: $28.38, $27.17, $25.75.
Key Resistance Levels: $30, $32.57, $34.37.
At the beginning of September, the drop in the price of Bitcoin caused Binance Coin to drop from the $26 resistance and reach the support at a 2-month-old rising trend line. Then, BNB rebounded as the buyers started to increase their volume.
The bullish momentum is a result of recent Binance defi-related news: the latest development of the Binance Smart Chain, along with the hype around BurgerSwap – a Uniswap alternative built on the Binance Smart Chain.
Yesterday, September 12th, BNB surged by a total of 12.5%, which brought the price above the previous 2020 high of $27.17. Today, BNB continues and spiked by a further 8.6%, which saw the coin breaking above $30 to set a fresh 2020 high at $32.57 (1.618 Fib Extension).
The coin has since retraced to the $30 area, following the market’s correction, as of writing these lines.
