On 31 March, XLM breached $0.1, appreciating by over 20%. But the bearish order block placed at $0.1124 set it into a correction, shedding about 8% in the drop. Will the confluence of support prevent further drop?
Can the $0.1020 support hold?
On March 28, XLM breached a stiff resistance level of $0.0964 and inflicted a bearish order breaker. But the upswing hit a price ceiling at $0.1118, with the overall price action chalking a bullish pendant.
Besides, the retracement has hit a key confluence area of $0.1020 – a convergence of an ascending line, a bullish order block on the 12-hour chart, and 20 EMA (exponential moving average). Sellers could face a strong obstacle at the confluence area which may offer bulls a soft landing to inflict a recovery. The immediate target for a bullish breakout scenario will be $0.1118 – a 6% potential rally.
Sellers may have difficulty denting bullish sentiment beyond $0.1020. Contrary to this assumption, sellers may gain more leverage if they overcome this obstacle. A close below $0.1018 could expose XLM to more selling pressure, which could sink it toward $0.0964.
Meanwhile, the RSI retreated from the overbought zone – a decline in buying pressure. But the RSI may rebound from the equilibrium level if the past trend repeats. However, a bearish MACD crossover showed sellers’ increasing market influence, at the time of writing.
