Lumen (XLM), currently the 13th largest digital asset with a total market capitalization of $ 984 million, was trading at $ 0.0483 early on Wednesday. The coin also reported an average volume of $ 513 million over the last 24 hours.

XLM/USD has great potential for growth as it trades above the main bullish trend line of the daily chart. And in this case, the $ 0.0500 level remains in focus.

Since early April, the cryptocurrency has gained positive momentum after the Stellar Foundation launched the Lumenthropy project.

XLM/USD analysis

The first resistance is seen at $ 0.049, where is the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent drop from $ 0.0524 to $ 0.0455. Successful breakthrough and daily close above this level can send the bulls up for a test at the $ 0.0520 main resistance zone. Then the focus will move to $ 0.0532 (high from 10th March before the crash).

But if the price fails to break above $ 0.049, it is possible to see a test of the upside trend line on the daily chart. It is located at 0.04730, where the 23.6% Fibo level is also found. A clear break below this support area may increase the downside momentum to $ 0.0450. The next major support is close to $ 0.0430, followed by $ 0.0400.

XLM/USD: The technical picture implies a further rise

Today is a mixed day, but most of the major cryptocurrencies are in the green zone. The move of Bitcoin to $ 10 275 yesterday should provide support to the broader market. Meanwhile, Stellar’s Lumen (XLM) grown is supported by market sentiments and positive fundamentals.

Bitcoin dominance continued to hold levels below 63% since the start of the week. Total market capitalization on Wednesday morning was $ 295.57 billion. At the time of the writing, 24-hour trading volumes were $ 173.77 billion.

 

Bitcoin jumped back above $ 10,000

BTC/USD rose again above the $ 10,000 key area this Tuesday. This rebound was due to the test of 23.6% Fibo level of the recent rise from $ 6,480 to a high of $ 10,275. Currently, however, the price is correcting lower below $ 10,200.

After all, the $ 10,200 level is a key hurdle for the Bitcoin bulls. But since the golden cross (when the 50-day SMA crosses above the 200 SMA) was confirmed on the chart today, the bulls may be able to keep the price above the psychologically important level of 10,000. We may see a bullish rally before halving the event in May. And then to see a correction just before or after the event.

On the downside, the first support below $ 10,000 is $ 9,500 (23.6% Fibo correction).

Technical analysis of XLM/USD

Lumen’s price failed to continue its strong upward movement above the $ 0.0875 level. The XLM/USD pair formed there a short-term top on Friday but then dropped below $ 0.0800.

XLM even broke the $ 0.0780 support and the 4-hour 55 SMA. This fact could open the door to more losses and the price could test the psychological level of $ 0.0700.

On the upside, the first resistance is near the $ 0.0750 level and the 55-day SMA of the 4-hour chart. But to turn back to positive territory, Lumen has to move above $ 0.0780 and $ 0.0800. In addition, the 50% Fibonacci retracement level (0.0772) of the current fall from $ 0.0875 to the bottom of $ 0.0669 is also close.

On the downside, the first major support is at 0.0700, followed by $ 0.0680. If the bulls fail to protect the $ 0.0650 area, there is a risk of a further decline below $ 0.0620 in the near future.

Long-term perspevtive

From a long-term perspective, since the beginning of February, XLM/USD has been trading over 200 SMA on a daily chart for the first time since the end of June 2019. Although this is considered a bullish signal, the price can test again this MA (currently at $ 0.0622) before another uptrend starts. On the other hand, a clear break below 200 SMA will increase the sales pressure and can push the price to the next strong support at $ 0.0582. It is created by 100 SMA on a daily chart.
