Stellar Lumen Price Analysis (XLM to USD)
After a failed attempt near the $0.0800 area, stellar lumen price declined sharply below $0.0780 and $0.0750 against the US Dollar. The XLM/USD pair tested the $0.0680 support area and recently recovered higher.
There was a break above the $0.0700 and $0.0720 resistance levels. Besides, the price surpassed the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent slide from the $0.0796 high to $0.0673 low.
However, the upward move was capped by the $0.0735 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). The 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent slide from the $0.0796 high to $0.0673 low also acted as a hurdle.
Clearly, the price failed to continue above $0.0735 and it is currently declining. There was a break below a key contracting triangle with support near $0.0712 on the 4-hours chart.
