Top 3 Coins to Watch Today: DOT, TRX, CRO – May 4 Trading Analysis

May 04, 2022, 8:00 AM AEST - 2 weeks ago

Let’s take a closer look at today’s altcoins showing breakout signals. We’ll explain what the coin is, then dive into the trading charts and provide some analysis to help you decide.

1. Polkadot (DOT)

Polkadot DOT is an open-source sharding multichain protocol that facilitates the cross-chain transfer of any data or asset types, not just tokens, thereby making a wide range of blockchains interoperable with each other. Polkadot’s native DOT token serves three clear purposes: providing network governance and operations, and creating parachains by bonding. The Polkadot protocol connects public and private chains, permissionless networks, oracles and future technologies, allowing these independent blockchains to trustlessly share information and transactions through the Polkadot relay chain.

DOT Price Analysis

At the time of writing, DOT is ranked the 14th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$14.91. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

DOT has retraced nearly 62% during Q1, showing little sign of interest from buyers.

April’s consolidation at possible support from $15.68 to $19.57 broke down with the rest of the market last month, turning this into likely resistance on future retests. This area now has confluence with the 9 and 18 EMAs.

If market conditions turn and this resistance breaks, an area near the midpoint of January’s consolidation range, near $22.70, and the monthly high near $26.88 may see profit-taking from bulls.

The first test of possible support near $14.80 showed some sensitivity. Still, continued bearishness in the market will likely cause a break of this level.

A break of this support might continue to drop to the next possible support near $14.10, running stops under the Q3 2021 swing low. If this level gives support and begins a consolidation forming a bottom, bulls might wait for a wick below to possible support from $13.55 to $12.37.

2. Tron (TRX)

Tron TRX is a blockchain-based operating system that aims to ensure this technology is suitable for daily use. Whereas Bitcoin can handle up to six transactions per second, and Ethereum up to 25, TRON claims that its network has a capacity for 2,000 TPS. This project is best described as a decentralised platform focused on content sharing and entertainment, and to this end, one of its biggest acquisitions was the file-sharing service BitTorrent in 2018. Overall, TRON has divided its goals into six phases. These include delivering simple distributed file sharing, driving content creation through financial rewards.

TRX Price Analysis

At the time of writing, TRX is ranked the 20th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$0.07217. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

TRX accompanied the rest of the market during the January drop, falling nearly 60% from its mid-December high until it found a low in March.

Price action formed a weekly support level near $0.06054, which has so far held up the price. The most recent swing low inside this range, near $0.05829, might be the target for any future stop runs. After this low, the swing low near $0.05589 and the gap beginning near $0.05326 mark possible higher-timeframe support.

The price is currently battling with significant higher-timeframe resistance levels, with the closest probable resistance resting near $0.07592, just over the previous monthly open. A sweep of the relatively equal highs above this resistance might find sellers near $0.07835, but could reach as high as $0.08637.

3. Crypto Coin (CRO)

Crypto.com coin CRO is the native cryptocurrency token of Crypto.com Chain, a decentralised, open-source blockchain developed by the Crypto.com payment, trading and financial services company. Crypto.com Chain is one of the products in Crypto.com’s lineup of solutions designed to accelerate the global adoption of cryptocurrencies as a means of increasing personal control over money, safeguarding user data, and protecting users’ identities. The CRO blockchain serves primarily as a vehicle that powers the Crypto.com Pay mobile payments app.

CRO Price Analysis

At the time of writing, CRO is ranked the 22nd cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$0.2877. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

CRO went parabolic during November, reaching nearly 115% percent within a few days as it blasted through its old all-time high.

This fast move left little compelling higher-timeframe support near the current price. A level near $0.2522, which has confluence with the 8 EMA and 127% extension of H2 2021’s swing, could provide support.

Further below, near $0.2291, 2021’s previous monthly high could also provide some support on a retest. The last consolidation before the breakout, near December’s open, might give the most substantial support. However, this would require significant retracement from the current price point.

While next targets are impossible to predict, extensions from H1 2021’s move suggest that the 40% extension, near $0.3675, could provide some resistance. Above this level, the 48% extension near $0.4348 could also trigger bulls to take profits.
