Stellar Price Analysis: After 50% Weekly ROI, XLM Facing Important Resistance at $0.3

XLM/USD – Bulls Defend Support at $0.27

Key Support Levels: $0.27, $0.257, $0.224.
Key Resistance Levels: $0.3, $0.325, $0.35.

XLM seems to be holding strong at the $0.27 support over the past three days after it surged as high as $0.45 last week. The cryptocurrency could not break a daily candle above $0.35 and started to head lower from there. Nevertheless, it’s up about 50% since the open seven days ago and it’s now facing an important resistance.

During the BTC intra-day price drop on Monday, XLM fell as low as $0.2 but quickly recovered to close the daily candle above $0.27. It has since pushed higher toward $0.286 but is trading beneath a short term falling trend line, which will need to be penetrated to head higher.
