Project Atlas

Further into the live stream, the Tron team provided an update on the heavily anticipated Project Atlas. This is Tron’s integration with the sharing platform BitTorrent.

Technical Review

TRX/USD continues to show encouraging signs for the market bulls. The price has proved stability of late, following the strong bounce on 14th August. As covered in the last Tron Price Analysis, a key near-term game-changer, is the long-running descending trend line. The current daily candlestick is sitting just above the mentioned resistance. This latest price development could be inviting of some further buying pressure, given the length of time respecting the line. Should the market observe a daily close above, the next challenge would be the pennant.

TRX/USD daily chart

Despite the trend line resistance breakout, the price must gain further buying confirmation by clearing the pennant pattern to the upside. The upper part of this pattern would need to be tested, tracking at 0.024350. Near-term support can now be eyed at 0.021600. This is on-top of the broken descending line, and in proximity to the 50DMA. Further south would be 0.019625, the lower support of the pennant.
