In the second half of September, Spot market demand for XLM declined, as demonstrated by the retreating Relative Strength Index (RSI). 

Similarly, the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) dropped, indicating massive capital outflows from the XLM markets, underscoring the bearish bias over the same period. 

The bearish pressure saw XLM depreciate from the range high of $0.13 to a range low ($0.11). A weekly bullish order block (OB) of $0.095 – $0.109 (cyan). So, the area between $0.095 and $0.11 could act as a solid bullish zone. 

Northwards, the key resistance levels to consider are $0.115, 50-EMA (Exponential Moving Average) of $0.120, mid-range ($0.1220), and range-high ($0.13).
