TRX/USD technical analysis: healthy retracement in play after a massive upswing

The 21st-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has seemingly ended its uptrend after hitting an all-time high of $0.6. TRON’s current price seems very overextended, and while the cryptocurrency has a lot of upside potential, its price will most likely experience a slight downturn.

TRON has seen volume increase across the board, both for its upswings and downswings. If TRX manages to pass the $0.6 resistance level, it will most likely face the next resistance at -27.2% Fib retracement level of $0.662. On the other hand, its first strong support level is at the 23.6% Fib retracement level of $0.538.

While it is most likely true that the incoming protocol upgrade is already priced in, TRX has a lot of upside potential.
