TRON’s technical picture

TRX/USD peaked at $0.0161 on September 3 and resumed the sell-off. The coin smashed several important support levels including $0.0151 and $0.0150 to trade at $0.0141 during early Asian hours. While the price has recovered towards $0.0149 by the time of writing, the short-term trend remains bearish as long as the coin stays under $0.0150.

The initial support is created by the recent low at  $0.0111, which is the worst level since December 2018. If it is broken, the sell-off may be extended towards $0.0140. On the upside, we will need to see a sustainable move above $0.0150 for the recovery to gain traction with the first aim at $0.0155 created by SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) 4-hour and the middle line of 4-hour Bollinger Band.
