BNB/USD has a looming upside breakout on Wednesday following the formation of an inverted head-and-shoulders pattern. The formation of this pattern indicates a trend continuation, in this case, Binance Coin is likely to extend the gains above $20.00. The gains come after a trend reversal occurred when the price fails to make any significant movement past $20.50 in the first week of April. The price dipped under both the 12 exponential moving average (EMA) 4-hour and the 26 EMA 4-hour.
A bottom was formed marginally above $16.50 giving way for a rebound and the completion of the head formation of the pattern. A correction to the upside pulled above the 12 EMA and 26 EMA. This move saw the bulls’ confidence increase as they took more positions. BNB/USD touched $20.00 before reversing slightly to the region above $18.50. The price is currently sitting comfortably above the EMAs while trading at $19.75.
The reaction to the inverted head-and-shoulders pattern is the strongest trend indicator the traders need to look out for. However, they must watch for a sustained breakout above $20.00 before they can get confident that the move will test $21.00.
Considering other indicators like the moving average convergence divergence (MACD) show that BNB/USD will continue with the current sideways trading in the coming sessions. The indicator signal at +0.28 is horizontal while the divergence is constant.
