XLM/USD Daily Chart: Bullish
XLM/USD Daily Chart
Stellar (XLM) breached above the January resistance at $0.4399 to trend higher on Feb. 10. The upsloping moving averages and the RSI near the overbought zone suggest that bulls are in command. Above $0.47, the XLM/USD pair could rally to $0.50 where the bears may again mount stiff resistance. Bulls must focus on breaking the resistance at $0.50 and then $0.65 to set the pace for a run-up to all-time highs of $0.9361.
On the contrary, if the price fails to hold higher at $0.4798, a fall back to $0.4399 and then $0.41 may be anticipated. However, further declines may be stalled at the $0.35 support. XLM may be forced to revisit support at the MA 50 ($0.2797) if this support caves in.

XLM/USD 4-Hour Chart
As seen on the 4-hour time frame, XLM began a steady climb on Jan. 28 after converting the two MAs- 50 and 200 into support. Stellar (XLM) is on a leg higher eyeing gains to $0.5. Stellar (XLM) needs to see its current price doubled to attain its prior all-time high of $0.9361.
On the contrary, if losses proceed beneath the current price of $0.4528, Stellar will be seeking support at $0.44 and the MA 50 at $0.3911 on the 4-hour chart. Price declines beneath this may bring the support levels at $0.34 and the MA 200 ($0.3150) into the picture. The XLM/USD pair is only bullish while trading above the $0.40 mark, key resistance is found at the $0.50 and 0.65 levels.
