Bitcoin’s price recovers after hitting a low of $6500 and currently it is trading at $7500 across major exchanges. XLM and XRP too recover after hitting key support areas. Both are under 9 days SMA and might try to do S/R flip of 21 days SMA (Simple Moving Average) as both have RSI (Relative Strength Index) of 31.54 and 39.48, respectively.


Stellar Price Analysis

1 Day Time Frame: XLM coin tried to push above 200 days SMA (Simple Moving Average, red solid line) two times on November 05 & 12, and got rejected. According to XLM Forecast, Stellar price was holding above 21 days SMA (white solid line) on November 14 & 15 around $0.0726 price range but due to a sharp decline in Bitcoin price from its weekly Fibonacci level of 50%, i.e., $8532 towards the critical support at $6042. While BTC seems to have found its support at $6500 and bounced back to $7500, XLM/USD prices clearly seem to be correlated to the BTC/USD pattern.


Stellar price declined sharply from $0.827 and found support between a daily key and critical support area as shown by the yellow area between $0.057 and $0.0518. XLM coin price is under 9 days SMA (blue solid line) and retesting support/resistance at $0.06, if successful then the next target will be $0.067 as marked by 49 days SMA (green solid line).
