The Crypto Fear and Greed Index showed extreme greed with a reading of 93 for the day and has stayed above 80 since early November. MicroStrategy purchased another $50 million worth of BTC averaged to $19,474 per coin, while Grayscale added another $140 million to its Bitcoin holdings in the past 24 hours. Tron had bearish momentum behind it but stood resiliently at the $0.03 level of support. Steem did not show significant buying or selling volume in recent hours and was in a short-term downtrend, while Maker saw significant volatility in recent days.Tron [TRX]
TRX formed a symmetrical triangle (orange), and a smaller falling wedge (white) within the larger pattern. The price also refused to drop beneath the $0.03 region, with a dip to $0.0295 being bought up in recent sessions.
The MACD formed a bearish crossover and dropped beneath the zero line, to reflect the series of lower highs the price set over the past few days.
A close below the triangle would not rule out an upward breakout, as an upward breakout sometimes sees a fakeout to the downside on stop-loss hunts. $0.028 has been a pocket of liquidity, and the loss of this region would reinforce bearish pressure.
On the other hand, a dip to $0.029 before a surge past $0.03 can be expected for TRX in the coming days.

The past couple of days saw the price rise from $528 to $595 and drop to $522. Hence, the region at $500-$520 can be regarded as a region of demand, and $595-$610 a region of supply to execute long and short trades.
