Technical Review – 4-hour Chart

TRX/USD 4-hour chart

TRX/USD has been grinding lower after opening within 0.025000 territory at the start of the week. The momentum is with the bears as of now, looking to test key near-term areas of support. This is immediately seen at 0.023293, the 23rd October low. Looking further to the south, 0.228520, this is where an ascending trend line can be observed. It is also in proximity to the 13th October low. A failure to hold could see TRX/USD free falling, testing the 11-12 October low area, 0.020685.

Lastly, in terms of near-term resistance, this can be seen at $0.024225, the high print on 24th October and general 4-hour resistance. Enough momentum and a breakthrough could see TRX/USD testing the levels from start of the week, 0.025000. Observing from a long-term time frame, such as a daily, it can be seen how much is in the way of moving out from the 2 cents territory.

Technical Review – Daily Chart

TRX/USD daily chart

There are many barriers in the way of stopping TRX/USD moving into the 3 cents territory, as highlighted in the 4-hour technical breakdown. Price action has been trapped within the $0.017000 – $0.028300 range, going on 11 weeks now. A lack of momentum and firm commitment continues to take its toll on the price. As a result, on each occasion the market observes a decent rally, the bears swoop in with deep selling pressure.

The key to further upside is simply TRX/USD needs to break and close above this mundane range. In terms of how this can be done, the bulls must breakdown the chunky supply area, $0.027000-0.028000. Bulls have faltered in this region on several occasions in October, September and August. Therefore, it is going to really take some decent buying pressure to see a break from this stubborn range and tough resistance.
