Binance has started to take a precautionary measure in order to ensure that there would no market manipulation post the launch of the Futures product. The platform would be implementing a “pricing limit of ±1% on the mark price” within the first 15 minutes of post-trading. This move may have been a result of the exchange being drawn to the drastic price rise of certain cryptos, after announcing support for them on its platform.

BAT gains up to 10% to reach seven month high
Basic Attention Token (BAT) chart | Source: Tradingview
In 2019, Basic Attention Token (BAT) was one of the clear leaders of the January 2019 – June 2019 rally. However, Basic Attention Token failed to maintain momentum and fizzled out after reaching 0.502 in April 2019. To say that Basic Attention Token’s fall two months before the rest of the market was disappointing is not saying enough. But we could be seeing a change in direction now. Today (February 12th, 2019) already represents the highest volume traded day since October 11th, 2019.
We’ve also seen Basic Attention Token tag new 6-month highs with a current daily high of 0.3088. The 0.3088 level also represents the next primary resistance level that Basic Attention Token needs to break before retesting the April 2019 highs. We could see Basic Attention Token facing some stiff resistance here on the daily chart due to some bearish divergence that exists between the RSI and Composite Index.
BAT has just gained up to 10% to push its market capitalization over $456 million for the first time since July 2019. This continues a recent surge of momentum that has seen BAT gain almost 57% in the last month. The price of BAT now stands at $0.32.
