Did the $41M Bitcoin Theft Create a Buying Opportunity for Binance Coin (BNB)?

Did the $41M Bitcoin Theft Create a Buying Opportunity for Binance Coin (BNB)?

Binance Token (BNB) has taken a significant due to the Binance Bitcoin hack but is the recent pullback an opportunity for buyers?


BNB Maybe a Steal as Binance Reels

Since topping out at $25.49 Binance Token (BNB) 00 has pulled back by nearly 27% and the fallout from last weeks Tether – Bitfinex scandal along with Binances recent $41 million bitcoin theft are taking their toll on the exchange’s native token.

Clearly, after a more than 500% rally, BNB was ripe for a bit of profit taking and a trend change but the current dump could be more connected to recent events and not a representation of BNBs value from a technical standpoint.


BNB-USDT Daily Chart


As recently as May 2, BNB was consolidating between $25 to $21 and posting daily lower highs. Its clear that altcoin was losing strength as it struggled to stay above the 12 EMA The bear cross on the daily MACD corresponds with the April 26th news of Bitfinex misappropriating $850 million USDT to cover their own losses.


BNB-USDT 4-Hr Chart


Todays pullback brought BNB below both moving averages and the 12 is on the verge of crossing below the 26 EMA. There is the possibility of an oversold bounce occurring shortly as the RSI and MACD are each oversold, but barring a massive influx of buyers, the bounce is not likely to change the trend or extend past $19.50.

On its way to $25.49, Binance Coin blasted through $17 – $21 (61.8% Fib retracement) and the lack of support beneath $19 explains why BNB is slicing through this level towards more solid support at $15. If $17.30 doesnt hold then the 50% fib level.

Given that USDT and BTC have shaken off and recovered from the same recent events that now impact BNB, its likely that BNB will also recover as the public gets over the shock of the largest crypto-exchange by daily volume enduring a $41 million hack. Luckily, it has resulted in zero Binance users losing funds.

In result, the current price could be a buying opportunity for swing traders as a return to the previous range represents a 20 – 25% return and those looking to set up a long position might consider buying a quarter of their expected investment.
