Looking at the 4-hours chart of BNB/USD, the pair failed on two occasions to clear the key $25.00 and $25.30 resistance levels. A swing high was formed at $25.34 and the price started a major decline.

It settled below the $24.00 support and the 25 simple moving average (4-hours). Recently, the decline got momentum after the security breach news. The price fell more than 7% and broke the $22.00 support.

There was a clear break below the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $21.05 low to $25.34 high. It opened the doors for a push below the last swing low at $21.05.

BNB even spiked below the $20.00 support, plus the 1.236 Fib extension level of the last wave from the $21.05 low to $25.34 high. However, it was brought back sharply and the price is currently consolidating above $20.80.

On the downside, there are many supports near the $20.00 area. If there are further losses, the price could test the next major support near $18.50 and the 1.618 Fib extension level of the last wave from the $21.05 low to $25.34 high.

Overall, binance coin is likely to bounce back and the recent security breach is unlikely to impact the uptrend. As long as BNB price is above $20.00 and $18.50, it is could climb back above $22.00 and $23.50.
