TRX recently surpassed AVAX to become the 15th largest crypto in the market. TRX is currently trading at $0.06, down by 4 per cent in the last seven days. After reaching a local high of $0.072 in August, TRX has been creating a series of higher lows and has been unable to move above its upper trendline resistance.

If we look at the chart closely, the pattern appears to be a falling wedge pattern. However, TRX, led by a lack of momentum and investor interest, was pulled down further.

Led by adverse market conditions, negative indicators like a weak RSI of 37 and trade below all moving averages, TRX prospects don’t appear strong. TRX would need a strong push towards $0.061 and further towards $0.063 to mark a clear momentum shift. In case of a downfall, June lows will come into play.

Major levels
Resistance: $0.061, $0.062, $0.063

Support: $0.059, $0.058
