Stellar Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that the current price of Stellar is sitting close to its 50 day moving averages; moving average crosses often indicate a change in momentum, so this may be worth keeping an eye on. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. Traders will also want to note, though, that a counter trend — meaning a trend going up — can be seen on the 14 day timeframe. This may setup an interesting opportunity for traders looking to sell rallies in anticipation of the primary trend resuming. For additional context, note that price has gone up 8 out of the past 14 days.
