3. Technical Analysis on Binance Coin
3.1. Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP)
VWAP is a technical indicator used by a trader to gauge the overall trend of an asset price movement. VWAP line (orange line) represents the volume-weighted average price (average price here is defined as the average of high, low and close prices) while close price line (blue line) represents the price when BNB is closed at the end of every single day.
Whenever blue line (close price) is above orange line (VWAP), it indicates that the asset is gaining momentum and being traded higher than its average price level. This would represent a 'buy' opportunity for short-term momentum trader whom task is to trade following the trend while a longer term mean-revision trader might take it as a 'sell' opportunity, anticipating that the price of BNB (blue line) to fall to its average level (orange line).
Whenever blue line (close price) is below orange line (VWAP), it indicates that the asset is losing momentum and being traded lower than its average price level. This would represent a 'sell' opportunity for short-term momentum trader whom task is to trade following the trend while a longer term mean-revision trader might take it as a 'buy' opportunity, anticipating that the price of BNB (blue line) to rise to its average level (orange line).
As of 02 May 2021, VWAP is suggesting that BNB has been gaining a lot of momentum and is now trading higher than its average price range of $ 540 to $ 560 per BNB.
3.2. Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD)
MACD is often used by trader as a momentum indicator. There are 2 lines that form the above charts, namely MACD (12, 26) lines and Signal(9) line, while the histogram is calculated by subtracting Signal (9) from MACD (12,26). Histogram would fall to the negative territory whenever MACD (12, 26) is trending at a lower level than Signal (9) and rise to the positive territory whenever MACD (12,26) is trending at a higher level than Signal (9).
MACD (12, 26) is computed by subtracting the 26-day exponential moving average (EMA) of BNB closing price from its 12-day EMA.
Signal (9) on the other hand is calculated as the 9-day EMA of MACD (12,26).
As MACD (12, 26) goes higher away from Signal (9), it signifies that BNB is gaining momentum and whenever it goes trends at a lower level than Signal (9),it signifies that BNB is losing momentum.
As of 02 May 2021, MACD is suggesting that BNB is trading at a higher momentum than its average.
3.3. Bollinger Band
Bollinger band is often being used by mean-reversion trader as a gauge to assess how undervalued or overvalued an asset is. Its chart made up of 4 lines, namely:
- SMA (20) (blue line), which is the 20-day simple moving average price of BNB
- Upper Band (orange line), which is computed by adding 2 standard deviations of BNB on SMA (20)
- Lower Band (red line) , which is computed by subtracting 2 standard deviations of BNB from SMA (20)
- Close (green line), which is the daily closing price of BNB
Whenever close line (green) touches the lower band (red), it indicates that BNB is corrected too much and is being traded at an undervalued level, representing a 'buy' opportunity. On the other hand, whenever close line (green) touches the upper band (orange), it indicates that BNB is gaining too much momentum and is being traded at an overvalued level, thus indicating a 'sell' opportunity.
As of 02 May 2021, Bollinger Band is suggesting that BNB is trading at an overbought level and there is a possibility for it to retrace to its average price level of USD 550 per BNB.
3.4. Relative Strength Index (RSI)
Just like Bollinger Band, Relative Strength Index is often being used by mean-reversion trader as a gauge to assess how undervalued or overvalued an asset is. There are 2 psychological levels, i.e. 30 and 70 in RSI. Whenever the RSI reaches 30, it indicates that BNB is corrected too much and is being traded at an undervalued level, representing a 'buy' opportunity. On the other hand, whenever RSI reaches 70, it indicates that BNB is gaining too much momentum and is being traded at an overvalued level, thus indicating a 'sell' opportunity.
As of 02 May 2021, RSI is suggesting that BNB is trading at its fair value (i.e. neither undervalued nor overvalued).
Based on the technical analysis presented above, quantdoge thinks that there is a fair chance for BNB to undergo a price correction in the short run which pulls its current high price to its average price range of around USD 560 to USD 580 per BNB, but I could be wrong, hence please make your careful due diligence before making any financial decision.
4. Binance Coin Risk Profile
Based on the 100-day 95% historical Value-at-Risk (VaR) profile of Binance Coin defined above, BNB seems to trade at a lower risk level on 02 May 2021 as compared to 10 days before on 22 Apr 2021, with its biggest pullback being seen at 27.51% on a single day during the last 100 days. However, I could be wrong, hence please make your careful due diligence before making any financial decision.
