Stellar price could jump to $0.185 before a major correction

Stellar is contained inside a symmetrical triangle pattern on the 12-hour chart. The digital asset has just defended the lower trendline support level at $0.165 and aims to rebound higher. The bulls need to reconquer the 50-SMA level as support.

XLM/USD 12-hour chart

Pushing through the 50-SMA will most likely lead XLM towards the upper trendline resistance level. A breakout above this point can quickly drive Stellar price towards $0.27, a 44% jump using the height of the pattern as a reference point. 

However, it seems that the 30-day volatility metric has jumped to levels not seen since January 2018 when Stellar experienced a massive correction from its all-time high at $0.88. The metric could be hinting at another potential major pullback for XLM.
