After XLM’s market structure flipped bearish in early August, the $0.11 support level has been tested thrice. The recent test of the level has seen bears shell the support level over a week-long period.

A look southward showed that the support level was defended by bulls on 18 August and 3 September. However, the constant selling pressure could see the support level taken over by bears.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) remained firmly under the neutral 50 to highlight the lack of buying pressure. Similarly, the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) dipped under zero with a negative reading of -0.12.

A break of the support level could see XLM sink to $0.096. This support level was last seen in July and provided the base for XLM’s biggest single-day pump in 2023. Bulls would be hoping for a repeat if the price gets to the level in the short term.

The exchange long/short ratio data from Coinglass revealed a strong bearish bias by market speculators. Shorts held a 53.26% share of the open contracts on the four-hour timeframe. Furthermore, this highlighted the increased likelihood of the support level giving way to the selling pressure in the short term.
