On the daily chart, XLM is attempting to break above the resistance. In fact, XLM is retesting the resistance after unsuccessfully dislodging it last month. The token remains supported by the 20-day moving average and 50-day moving average. A 20-day MA crossover above the 50-day MA confirms a bullish momentum.
If we turn to the MACD, the indicator is in the bullish zone. A growing divergence of the oscillator and the signal line indicates that momentum is building up for XLM. With momentum building at the resistance, the odds are for a breakout rather than a correction.
Should you buy XLM now?
XLM remains on a potential breakout. The fundamentals and the technical align, reinforcing a bullish view. Should the cryptocurrency break to the upside, XLM would move higher to find the next resistance at $0.148.
Currently, investing in XLM at the key level is not a good idea. Wait for a breakout and assess the trade. Potentially, the inflation data on Thursday could drag markets and force a correction. Aside from the market dynamics, XLM should be on the investors’ watch list.
