Nonetheless, investors must be cautious as things might take a U-turn soon, as a few on-chain metrics looked bearish for BNB.
What concerns do investors have?
CryptoQuant’s data revealed that BNB’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) was in an overbought position, which was a massive bearish indicator suggesting a trend reversal in the coming days. In fact, the price decline might have begun already, as at the time of writing, BNB’s price had declined by over 1.3% in the last 24 hours.
Despite the possibility of a trend reversal, BNB remained popular in the crypto space, as it was on LunarCrush’s list of the top five cryptocurrencies by social contributors on 10 January.

Why BNB still might have a chance
Unlike on-chain metrics, most market indicators were in favor of the buyers, suggesting a continued price surge. The MACD revealed a bullish advantage in the market. According to the Exponential Moving Average (EMA) Ribbon, the 20-day EMA was fast approaching the 55-day EMA, increasing the chances of a bullish crossover.
After a short decline, BNB’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) also registered an uptick. However, the Money Flow Index (MFI) was bearish as it went down and was heading towards the neutral mark.
