XLM/USD: A test of the $1 mark is back on the buyers’ radar

XLM/USD: Daily chart

XLM/USD is on the verge of confirming a symmetrical triangle breakout on the daily sticks.  Therefore, the focus is on daily close above the falling trendline resistance at $0.4223.

The odds of an upside break are higher as the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) has already charted a breakout, although the bulls await  confirmation.

The next immediate resistance for the XLM buyers is seen at the 21-daily moving average (DMA) of $0.4415.

Further up, acceptance above the psychological $0.50 barrier is critical to extending the run higher towards the $1 mark, which also coincides with the pattern target.

To the downside, the fierce cap is placed at the rising trendline support at $0.3967. A sustained move below the latter could yield a symmetrical triangle breakdown.

The bullish 50-DMA at $0.3882 could offer some temporary reprieve to the bulls. Sellers would then target the February 23 low at $0.3072.
