Binance Coin (BNB) is down 12% and it broke the USD 350 support. BNB even traded below USD 320, but it might find support near the USD 305 and USD 300 levels. As long as it is above USD 300, there are chances of a steady recovery towards USD 350.
Litecoin (LTC) failed to stay above the USD 185 and USD 180 support levels. LTC was testing the USD 165 support level before recovering above USD 175. If there are more losses, the price might decline towards the USD 150 support.
