TRON’s technical picture

Positive fundamentals did little to protect the coin from the bearish sentiments that gripped the cryptocurrency market. While TRX/USD managed to recover from the intraday low of $0.0153, it is still well below the lower boundary of the previous range at $0.0170.

On the downside, the initial support is created by an intraday low of  $0.0153, followed by psychological $0.0150.
