Binance Coin Forms Crucial Sell Signal: TD Sequential
Binance’s Binance Coin (BNB) has been on a tear over the past few weeks. In the span of about two weeks, the coin has doubled against Bitcoin, shocking many traders.
The coin is up around 30% in the past three days alone, rallying despite a drop in the price of leading cryptocurrencies.
BNB’s resilience comes as Binance has rolled out the Binance Smart Chain, a blockchain that runs alongside the original Binance Chain. What sets the two networks apart is that the new one can facilitate smart contracts compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine.
Despite this fundamental development, Binance Coin may be technically poised to reverse.
The leading cryptocurrency recently formed a “sell 9” candle against Bitcoin, a Telegram channel tracking the Tom Demark Sequential indicator noted on Monday morning.
