XLM/USD 4-hour chart

Stellar is trading inside a static range between $0.324 and $0.272 on the 4-hour chart. The upper Bollinger Band coincides with the resistance level at $0.324. As XLM has rebounded from the fakeout, a breakout above this critical point is likely and can drive its price towards $0.4.

On the other hand, the middle Bollinger band could act as a resistance level at $0.30 rejecting XLM price and pushing it towards $0.272. A breakdown below this point would quickly move Stellar to $0.2.
