After a successful breakout above the resistance trendline at $0.29, XLM price jumped by 30% but saw a massive rejection at $0.383 and dropped to $0.291 within the next 12 hours. This massive dive shows that the breakout, although meeting its target, couldn’t hold at that level.

XLM sell signals

Additionally, the TD Sequential indicator has presented a sell signal on the 4-hour chart which had a lot of continuation and it’s about to exhibit the same call on the 6-hour chart, adding even more credence to the bearish outlook.

However, despite the significant crash in the past 24 hours, if the bulls can defend $0.29, the price target remains at $0.38 in the long-term.
