Real Trade News

In the last 24 hours, there are three news headlines that can impact the market. First by its significance is that  Tether (USDT), has issued 250 million more tokens yesterday, according to data from Omni Explorer.

While it is still unclear whether Tether is printing their coins on there own, or investors are purchasing USDT and they increased the supply in a proper 1:1 ratio, one thing is certain – more Tethers mean that Bitcoin’s price is going up.

One of the headlines that could impact the market negatively is that Hyun Song Shin, economic adviser at The Bank for International Settlements’ (BIS), said that cryptocurrencies should be treated the same as stocks and bonds, Business Times reported June 25.

“If people pay to hold the tokens for financial gain, then arguably they should be treated as a security and come under the same rigorous documentation requirements and regulation as other securities offered to investors for a return.”

And the last of the three significant headlines is that cryptocurrency with a market capitalisation of $2.7 billion, Tron (TRX),  has activated its mainnet following a migration to its independent public blockchain, according to a blog post published June 25. This could impact the price of Tron positively.



From yesterday’s opening at 0.04271$, the price of Tron has decreased by 3.84% as the price is currently sitting at 0.041$

As you can see from the hourly chart, the price action is currently in a triangle and it looks like the breakout is near. Judging by the steepness of the triangle resistance line, the breakout is going to be from the downside, which means that the fundamental news may not impact the price just yet.

Tron is in the sell zone.

Real Trade News: After the recent low, the prices have recovered a bit, but that recovery was short-lived as the prices are now stagnating and even decreasing a bit. As the low had a V shape that is common at the bottom in the markets, I was convinced that the low was the bottom for a short-term recovery. Now, a day later and after analysing the charts, I am not so sure anymore. We might see another low in the following days, so be careful not to fall into the trap of thinking the market has to do something (has to recover after a steep low)- it doesn’t have to do anything.
