The digital assets are bleeding on Friday, and word is that the prices are reacting to the Financial Services Agency in Japan having sent improvement orders to at least six cryptocurrency exchanges. The biggest exchange in the country, Bitflyer Inc. is also among the exchanges in the spotlight.
Technical indicators on the chart show that the bears have the control. The stochastic is deep into the oversold territory while the price is trading below the moving averages. If the price breaks below the supporting trendline of Andrew’s Pitchfork, TRX/USD could break down below the key support at $0.040.
