The Hourly View for XLM

Last Updated October 17, 2020, 07:016 GMT

At the moment, XLM’s price is up $0 (0.09%) from the hour prior. This is the 2nd hour in a row XLM has seen its price head up. 2 Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on XLM. Given that we see an uptrend on the 20 and 10 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

Stellar Technical Analysis

Notably, Stellar crossed above its 50 and 200 day moving averages yesterday.
