  • Stellar price had a significant breakout from a symmetrical triangle pattern.
  • The digital asset aims for a 34% move towards $0.55.
  • However, a key indicator is close to presenting two robust sell signals on different time frames.

Stellar was trading inside a tightening range since February 21 before finally seeing a breakout above the upper resistance trendline. However, the move was fairly weak and a key indicator shows XLM could be facing strong selling pressure.

Stellar price aims for $0.55 but might have to endure some pain first

On the 4-hour chart, the breakout from the symmetrical triangle pattern has a price target of $0.55, a 34% move calculated using the height of the pattern. Initially, XLM didn’t see a lot of continuation after the breakout but has finally touched $0.434.
