TRX/USD: Technical picture

On the daily chart, TRX/USD moves towards the upper line of the daily Bollinger Band at $0.01930. If it is broken, the price may continue moving inside the BB towards its upward-looking middle line at $0.01800. This barrier may stop the correction and attract new buyers to the market. However, if it is cleared, $0.01700 will come into focus. This support is reinforced by 50-day SMA that have been limiting TRX decline since the end of April.

On the upside, the critical resistance comes at $0.0200. This psychological barrier is reinforced by a combination of 100-week SMA and the upper line of the weekly Bollinger Band.  A sustainable move above this area is needed for the upside to gain traction with the next focus on $0.2680, the highest level of 2020 reached in February.
