Tron (TRX) Drops into a Symmetrical Triangle
On May 10, the price of TRX/USD reached a low of $0.021. A gradual increase followed. It intensified on May 14. TRX subsequently reached an apparent top of $0.033 on May 16.
It has been decreasing inside the symmetrical triangle outlined below: While trading inside the triangle, the price has increased by 23.4%. It is currently trading in the middle of the pattern. The resistance and support lines are soon to converge which will force a breakout or breakdown.
To determine which is more likely, the price of TRX is analyzed at daily intervals alongside the RSI and the MACD below:
We can see that the price has been trading inside a horizontal channel since the beginning of 2018.
On Apr 8, the price reached a high of $0.032 A gradual decrease was followed by an increase and the price reached a higher high of $0.033 on May 16.
Similarly, the RSI and the MACD reached the first high on Apr 8. However, they have continued to generate lower values since. This bearish divergence suggests that price decreases are more likely than increases. Thus, we believe a breakdown is more likely than a breakout.
If the price does breakdown from the short-term channel, it should drop toward the support line of the horizontal channel near $0.022. At the current moment, it is unclear if TRX will reach this level before rebounding to the resistance line.
Binance Coin (BNB) Going Up!
On May 10, the price of BNB reached a low of $18.21. A gradual increase began with a resistance line emerging on May 15.
After a small drop, the price rebounded and validated the support the next day. A swift decrease preceded a gradual increase which brought BNB to a high of $30.4 on May 19.
Currently, BNB is trading inside the ascending wedge outlined below: Since the formation of the support line, the price has increased by 53%; however, the ascending wedge is a bearish pattern. This suggests that despite gains, we may see a breakdown in the near future. This reversal could mark significant or rapid price losses.
Furthermore, candlesticks near $30 have been characterized by long upper wicks, indicating that there is selling pressure in the market.
In order to predict whether a breakdown is likely BNB is analyzed at four-hour intervals alongside the RSI and the MACD below:
On May 15, the price reached a high of $28.21. Higher highs followed. On the contrary, the RSI and ]MACD generated lower values after their May 15 highs.
As with TRX, BNB is experiencing bearish divergence. Based on these indicators, we believe that the price will decrease to the support line of the wedge and eventually break down.
