That’s not all good news, either. PancakeSwap just made an announcement to its user base that it would be accepting TRX into its Syrup staking pool.
The price of TRX eventually reflects all of this. Using a weekly time frame, CoinGecko reports that TRX’s price rose 0.8%.
Everything looks and sounds fantastic, but what do the experts have to say about it?
To Uptrend, Or Not To Uptrend?
It doesn’t look like it’ll form an uptrend on the charts, and that might be for a number of reasons. It’s worth noting that the Bollinger band is establishing a crunch zone immediately following the cup formation in TRX.
The impending decline may be part of a larger cup-and-handle structure with an ascending triangle serving as its handle.
The regression model also reveals that the present decline is robust, with Pearson’s R value hitting 0.61, indicating that despite positive events on-chain, pain is not out of the question for TRX.
The fact that the RSI is still in the oversold bottom half further confirms a downward trend.
All of this is occurring as TRX trades at $0.0525 per coin. On a 4-hour timeframe, the technical indicators are optimistic, as the RSI is rising and the bollinger band is widening.
As this indicator oscillates between overbought and oversold, the rising RSI value is accompanied by a decline in price.
According to CoinGlass, the TRX derivatives market is improving slightly as exchange financing rates improve. TVL decreased on the DeFi side of Tron from $4.31 billion to $4.29 billion.
Not Enough Momentum
TRX investors and traders are unquestionably instilled with confidence by recent events. According to CoinGlass, this is further underlines by the fact that more traders are entering long holdings than short positions.
However, based on the metrics, they should proceed with caution, as the technicals indicate that TRX will experience further losses.
However, short-term traders could target the $0.056 barrier, as this would be a good place to begin a rally.
