Trouble Ahead? Binance Coin Futures Market Under Pressure With Negative Funding Rates

04/04/2024 3:00pm

NEWSBTC


The outlook for Binance Coin (BNB) has turned cloudy, with both futures market data and technical indicators flashing bearish signals. Based on our analysis of Coinglass data, negative funding rates and declining open interest in BNB futures contracts paint a picture of growing pessimism among traders.

This sentiment was confirmed on April 1st, when BNB’s funding rate dipped into negative territory at -0.012%. Binance Coin Funding Rate And Open Interest Down Further fueling the bearish narrative, BNB’s futures open interest has also witnessed a slight decline of 0.15%. Open interest reflects the total amount of outstanding futures contracts that haven’t been settled yet. A decrease in open interest suggests traders are exiting their positions without opening new ones, potentially signaling waning confidence in the market. Source: Coinglass Funding rates are a crucial mechanism in perpetual futures contracts that keep the contract price aligned with the spot price. When the contract price trades higher than the spot price, long position holders pay a fee to shorts, resulting in positive funding rates. Conversely, negative funding rates materialize when the contract price dips below the spot price, indicating that short sellers are currently paying fees to longs. Source: Coinglass More Traders Close Their Positions As negative sentiments mount, this open interest is expected to plummet further. This would imply that more traders are closing their positions and not opening new ones, suggesting a potential price drop for BNB. The bearish sentiment isn’t confined to the futures market. The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD), another technical indicator, is suggesting a possible resurgence in selling pressure. There’s an indication that the MACD line might cross below the signal line, typically interpreted as a bearish sign signaling the return of sellers to the market. It’s noteworthy that since March 18th, the MACD lines for BNB have been positioned for a downtrend. BNB market cap currently at $87.9 billion. Chart: TradingView.com BNB Price Retreat In The Offing? Considering both the futures market and technical analysis, there’s a potential for a short-term decline in BNB’s price. However, it’s important to acknowledge that market sentiment can shift rapidly, and technical indicators aren’t infallible predictors of future price movements. At the time of writing, BNB was trading at $587, up 6% in the last 24 hours, data from CoinMarketCap shows.

The Directional Movement Index (DMI), used to gauge trend strength, displayed a bearish crossover where the negative directional index sits above the positive directional index. This positioning suggests that bearish momentum is currently dominating the market. Analysts commonly interpret this particular crossover as an imperative signal prompting traders to consider exiting long positions and initiating short positions. This strategic move aligns with the prevailing trend indicated by the DMI, reinforcing the notion of a prevailing bearish sentiment within the market ecosystem.
