These bullish metrics helped boost Stellar’s price, which pumped 4% in the last 24 hours, per CoinMarketCap.
At the time of writing, XLM was trading at $0.1165 with a market capitalization of over $3.2 billion. This price uptrend was accompanied by a 97% rise in trading volume as well.
What is fueling the pump?
Thanks to the price uptick, XLM’s Price Volatility 1w saw a sharp spike. Its Binance Funding Rate was also in the green, meaning that derivatives traders were actively buying the coin at the time of press. Another optimistic update was that Stellar’s Open Interest grew alongside its price.
However, it must be noted that, at press time, XLM’s Open Interest registered a downtick. Additionally, as per CryptoQuant, XLM’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) was in an overbought position, which could increase selling pressure on the coin, thus putting an end to its bull run.
Realistic or not, here’s XLM’s market cap in BTC’s terms
The possibility of trend reversal seemed high as XLM’s price touched the Bollinger Bands’ upper limit at the time of writing. Its Money Flow Index (MFI) was also about to enter the overbought zone.
In addition, the token’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) took a sideways path in recent days. But despite that, the MACD remained in the buyers’ favor as it displayed a bullish crossover.
