Previous XLM PriceMovement
The XLM price has been trading inside a descending channel since July 2.
On September 18, XLM broke out from this channel.
The breakout occurred with very significant volume.
It reached a high of 898 satoshis before beginning a downward move.
Scope of Movement
In order to reduce the scope of possible price movements, we have incorporated the daily moving averages (MA) into the analysis.
The upward move ended once the price reached the 100-day MA.
Afterward, it decreased until it reached the 10- and 20-day MAs.
This is a very likely place to initiate a reversal.
Let’s take a closer look at a shorter-term time-frame to see if that will occur.
Looking at the hourly time-frame we can see that XLM has been trading inside a descending channel for the past three days.
XLM has been gradually moving between the resistance and support lines.
Since the descending channel is a neutral pattern, both a breakout and breakdown are equally likely.
In order to predict the direction of the movement, we have incorporated the RSI and MACD into the analysis.
Both have been generating bullish divergence since September 22.
Combining this with the strong support offered by the daily MAs and the strength of the breakout makes us believe that XLM is almost finished retracing and is likely to breakout.
An outline of possible price movements along with one resistance area is given below.
The resistance area is found at 760 satoshis.
We believe the XLM price will eventually break out from the channel and reach it.
The XLM price is trading inside a descending channel.
According to our analysis, it is likely to break out from the channel and reach the resistance area at 760 satoshis.
For hypothetical trading purposes, XLM is considered a buy near the current price of 670 satoshis.
