Technical Review – TRX/USD

TRX/USD 4-hour chart

Price action of late for TRX/USD has stabilized somewhat, but is still very much vulnerable to a further attack from the bear camp. A technical structure that has continued to form across the board, with several cryptocurrencies, is the bearish pennant pattern. This being the case given this stubborn downward trend. The market is dropping, then consolidating and forming the pennant, which has seen the bears pierce the structure to bring another wave of selling. This process has been on repeat for quite some time now.

A firm breakout of the above-mentioned formation, which would see a move out of the $0.01300 territory, could be very punishing. If judging by the current pole of the pennant that has formed since the start of the big sell-off on 7th November, the next drop may be huge. The pole has a percentage value of around 35%. Any breakout from the pennant structure, could in hindsight playing by the textbook, resulting in another fall equivalent. Should that actually materialize, TRX/USD could be forced down to $0.004063.
