TRX/USD: Technical picture
TRX/USD is stuck in a tight range with the upper boundary created by the middle line of the daily Bollinger Band at $0.01180. Once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction and take the price to the psychological resistance of $0.01200. The next barrier is created by the recent recovery high of March 20 at $0.0127. A sustainable move higher will open up the way towards $0.0130. Meanwhile, the long-term resistance comes at $0.01630. It is created by a strong confluence of SMA100 and SMA200 and the upper line of Bollinger Band on a daily chart.
On the downside, the critical barrier for TRX is created by $0.0100. The bears made several attempts to push the price below this level, to no avail. As a result this area emerged as strong initial support for the coin. If it is broken, the downside momentum may grow stronger and take the price towards the recent low of $0.0071 and the lower line of the daily Bollinger Band at $0.0063.
