Stellar (XLM), after a notable consolidation and price accumulation, had breached 10-month long resistance in the previous week when it successfully crossed above $0.101 briefly. After a few setbacks at the onset of the ongoing week, XLM/USD retested support around $0.085 while currently trades above $0.090 at $0.0914.
Stellar Lumens is not influenced by Bitcoin, Ethereum, or XRP and, therefore, has not experienced any steep intraday pullback like BTC that is now testing support around $9k. However, a dip even below is likely to exhibit bearish crossover with less volatility in the short-term. However, XLM has been that altcoin, which accelerated and breached the 10-month long resistance and rose beyond a $0.100 price area.
