Trade Recommendation: TRON

The TRON/US Dollar (TRX/USD) pair dropped to as low as $0.016 on August 14, 2018. At that price, TRON shed over 84% of its value from the 2018 high of $0.10041. While losses were tremendous, it appears that the altcoin’s time in bear territory is almost over.

Technical analysis show that TRON is positioning to take out the large falling wedge on the daily chart. This view comes after the market bounced off support of $0.017 yesterday, September 12. The price action tells us that participants are no longer waiting for this cryptocurrency to revisit its recent low. They are willing to buy at a higher price because they believe that TRX will significantly rise in the future.

This bullish sentiment will make it very tough for bears to keep market control. Add the fact that TRX is at the apex of the wedge and bears can see that keeping market control is almost impossible.

The strategy is to buy the breakout at $0.02 as long as the market generates volume of at least 33 million TRON units. The coin lost so much in as little as four months. Investors need to see some excitement in the market to help restore confidence. The breakout from the large falling wedge with heavy volume is a very good start.

If the market takes out $0.02, it will likely rally to our initial target of $0.036.

The process may take less than a month.
