Binance Coin / USD Short-term price analysis

Warning signs are starting to emerge that a technical pullback may occur, as the BNB / USD pair is showing bearish MACD divergence on the four-hour time frame.
Aside from the bearish price divergence, the Relative Strength Index and Stochastic indicator have both reached extreme oversold conditions on the mentioned time frame.

The MACD indicator is creating bearish divergence, which is signaling a possible near-term correction lower.
Binance Coin / USD Medium-term price analysis
Binance Coin is bullish in the medium-term, with the cryptocurrency staging a bullish rally above its 200-day moving average. Given that the BNB / USD pair has traded below its 200-day since August of last year, the recent breakout is a major technical development.
