IOTA (IOTA) Tron (TRX) Price Analysis: Laggards Playing Catch-Up




As Bitcoin continues to climb the charts in recent action, we have seen an evident explosion of enthusiasm reemerge in the cryptocurrency complex leading to technical breakouts to the upside of all manner and form.

However, the two coins we are going to focus on today – IOTA (IOTA) and Tron (TRX) – have been laggards relative to that recent shift in tone in the cryptocurrency complex as a whole. From the standpoint of technical analysis, laggards can be understood in one of two different ways: the “late to the party” and the “genuinely weak”.

Our job today is to look for clues in the action for these two coins to determine where they may fit into this typology.


Price Analysis:

  • High: $1.01
  • Low: $0.963
  • Major Resistance Level: $1.25
  • Hourly MACD: Emerging Upside Momentum

IOTA has been staunchly holding support at the $0.88 level. For bulls, the technical ramifications of this arrangement should be crystal clear: you have a well-structured setup on the long side right now provided the coin does not fall below this level.

The 14-day RSI offers a valuable clue here as well. We have seen an important negative divergence in this indicator over the past month of action. In other words, with three pivot lows since the middle of June all touching down and reversing just about at the $0.88 level, we have seen a rising tendency for the pivot lows consequently scored in the RSI measure.

A divergence like this between price action and oscillator action is often times an important technical signal. In itself, this may suggest a good reason to give the benefit of the doubt to support holding for IOTA at this point.

Tron (TRX)

Price Analysis:

  • High: $0.0393
  • Low: $0.0360
  • Major Resistance Level: $0.04
  • Hourly MACD: Strong Upward Momentum

Tron (TRX) has been a laggard over the past two weeks relative to many other coins in the crypto complex. However, over the last 48 hours that picture may be starting to change.

The coin actually logged a promising higher low earlier this week when it held support at the $0.033 level – well above its July 12 lows at $0.031.

In addition, Tron (TRX) also managed to spring back higher off a barely lower low on the hourly chart over the past several days. This action led to the upside chase that we’ve seen over the past 36 hours.

Now, we come to the real test: can this recent resurgence of upside momentum hold and breakout back above the $0.043 level?

If so, it will also have managed a breakout above its 50-day simple moving average, and spark a lot of new interest as a technical breakout candidate playing catch-up to the rest of the complex.

Happy Trading~

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming



Bitcoin crash

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Top 3 Coins to Buy Before They Go Big




Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.


Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

Can Crypto Credit Cards Disrupt the Fight Against Financial Crime?



crypto credit cards

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
