  • TRX/USD is retracing within the range.
  • Tron Foundation’s says Tron-based share of USDT is growing.

TRON (TRX), now the 11th largest digital asset with the market value of $1.6 billion, is changing hands at $0.0251 with mild bearish bias. The coin has lost nearly 2% in recent 24 hours, though it is still locked in a range limited by $0.0280 on the upside and $0.0250 on the downside.  

The lower boundary of the above-said channel is fortified by DMA50. A sustainable move lower will trigger a sell-off towards DMA200 at $0.0227  

On the upside, a sustainable move above $0.0280 is needed to support bullish sentiments and push the coin psychological $0.030.
