BNB will need to avoid the Second Major Resistance Level at $330 to target $340 and the Third Major Resistance Level at $342. BNB would need broader crypto market support a breakout from $335.

An extended rally would test the Third Major Resistance Level at $342.

A fall through Major Resistance Levels and the $318 pivot would bring the First Major Support Level at $312 into play. Barring another extended sell-off, BNB should avoid sub-$310. The Second Major Support Level sits at $306.
