Relative Strength Index

The RSI indicator is bullish on the four-hour time frame, although it is also showing negative price divergence.

 

Fundamental Analysis

Stellar has been one of the best performing tokens of late, with good news all around. On March 13, Coinbase Pro announced the support of Stellar on its blog. Prior to that, the German media company Börsenmedien AG, announced the acquisition of a 5% stake in SatoshiPay, a micropayment solution, that utilizes Stellar blockchain.

Furthermore, the community is expecting some good announcements from Stellar during the Money 20/20 Asia Conference that will be held in Singapore during March 19-21. Jed McCaleb, co-founder of Stellar, is slated as one of the speakers.


Stellar Lumen / USD Medium-term price analysis

 

Stellar Lumen has a neutral trading bias over the medium-time frame, with the XLM / USD pair recently breaking above the top of a descending price channel that the cryptocurrency has been trapped within since December 2018.

With the technical breakout now underway, we may see the cryptocurrency starting to target towards its 200-day moving average over the medium-term.

Traders should note that the daily time frame shows bullish MACD price divergence that extends towards the November 30th, 2018 trading high.

Pattern Watch

Aside from the descending price channel, the daily time frame is also showing a large falling wedge pattern which has been in play since May 2018.

 

MACD Indicator

The MACD indicator is bullish on the daily time frame and is currently generating a strong bullish trading signal.

 

Relative Strength Indicator

The RSI indicator is bullish on the daily time frame, although it has now moved into overbought territory.

 

Fundamental Analysis

In the medium term, expectations of new partnership announcements may continue to support the uptrend. However, an absence of positive news at the Money 20/20 Asia Conference, would probably result in a correction, especially given the overbought nature of the RSI Indicator.

Conclusion
