How to Buy Stellar’s Lumen

Stellar’s Lumen Price Support

Stellar’s Lumen gained 2.16% on Monday. Following on from a 4.56% rally from Sunday, Stellar’s Lumen ended the day at $0.072116.

A bearish start to the day saw Stellar’s Lumen fall to a mid-morning intraday low $0.07035 before finding support.

Stellar’s Lumen steered well clear of the first major support level at $0.06830 before rallying to a late morning high $0.0720.

Finding support from a broad-based crypto rally, Stellar’s Lumen came within range of the first major resistance level at $0.07260.

Cryptomarket forces weighed through the afternoon, however, with Stellar’s Lumen falling back to an afternoon low $0.07069.

Finding support from the broader market, Stellar’s Lumen rallied to an end of day intraday high $0.072116 to come within range of the first major resistance level at $0.0726 for a 2nd time.

The extended bearish trend remained firmly intact following 4 consecutive weeks in the red. Stellar’s Lumen continued to fall short of the 23.6% FIB of $0.1310 following a pullback from $0.13 levels in late June.

Since 13th May’s current year high $0.16176, Stellar’s Lumen has seen 9-weeks in the red, with just 4 weeks in the green…

The particularly bearish July and August led to a slide back from the 23.6% FIB of $0.1310.

For the bulls, a move back through to $0.14 levels would support a run at the 38.2% FIB of $0.1643 and a near-term bullish trend formation.

At the time of writing, Stellar’s Lumen was up by 0.16% to $0.072229. Stellar’s Lumen hit an early morning high $0.0724 before easing back to a low $0.072229.

Stellar’s Lumen came within range of the first major resistance level at $0.0727, whilst steering clear of the major support levels.

XLM/USD CHART

For the day ahead

Stellar’s Lumen would need to hold onto $0.0720 levels through the morning to support another run at the first major resistance level at $0.0727.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, to hold onto $0.0720 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, Stellar’s Lumen would likely continue to come up short of $0.0730 levels.

Failure to hold onto $0.0720 levels would see Stellar’s Lumen join the rest of the crypto majors in the red.

A fall through $0.0715 would bring the first major support level at $0.0709 into play before any recovery.

Barring an extended sell-off through the day, Stellar’s Lumen should steer clear of sub-$0.069 levels.

The second major support level at $0.0698 would limit any downside in the event of a fall through to sub-$0.070 levels.
