Analysts predict continuation of Binance Coin’s downtrend
Capital Markets Authority in Israel is the regulatory authority in charge of exchange licensing in the country.
The regulator has asked Binance to clarify the nature of its activities and is in the process of reviewing the world’s largest exchange’s licenses.
In response to the regulator’s intervention, Binance halted all trading activities. Binance has faced higher regulatory scrutiny over the past few months, facing a US Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) probe.
The exchange has faced an uphill battle with regulators in the US and the UK in 2021. The exchange removed support for Hebrew (the local language) and the currency, shekel, to comply with the regulations.
Binance has proactively responded to regulatory concerns in the past, similar to previous instances.
Analysts have evaluated the Binance Coin price trend and argued that the token is likely to continue its uptrend if it breaks out of the $430-$440 zone.
The exchange’s native token has failed to break out of the zone and started a downtrend. @WalterCripto, an analyst and trader, notes that Binance Coin’s downtrend could prolong based on the token’s price trend analysis.
FXStreet analysts have an opposing view, predict breakout to $555 as Binance price flips a significant level.
