These highs give us the descending resistance line which completes the triangle.
The XLM price is analyzed alongside the 10- and 20-day moving averages (MA) in the first graph and the RSI in the second
On June 24, a bearish cross transpired between the 10- and 20-day MAs.A rapid decrease ensued. Since then, the XLM price has been trading below both MAs, facing very close resistance from the 10-day one. At the time of writing, it made an attempt to move above the 10-day MA but was rejected at the 20-day one. A look at the RSI indicates that further upward movement is likely. The RSI has been generating bullish divergence since June 26. This divergence, however, is not present in the daily time-frame. It is only visible in time-frames of 12-hours or less. The use of these indicators makes it likely that the Stellar lumens price will initiate an upward move. However, there is significant resistance all the way to $0.12.
Reversal AreasTwo resistance areas are provided for XLM/USD below. If the XLM price initiates an upward move, it is likely to find resistance in these areas. They are found at $0.113 and $0.12 respectively. The $0.12 area also corresponds with the descending resistance line of the triangle. A breakout above this area would also cause a breakout from the triangle.
SummaryThe Stellar lumens price has been decreasing since May 16, trading inside a symmetrical triangle. The divergence generated in the RSI indicates that the XLM price is likely to begin an upward move and reach at least one of the resistance areas outlined above.
