XLM/USD – Epic 100% Surge Shocks Market As XLM Hits 31-Month High
Key Support Levels: $0.3, $0.289, $0.257.
Key Resistance Levels: $0.373, $0.4, $0.418.
XLM was pretty quiet during December. The coin was trading beneath a falling trend line for the entire month as it dropped into the $0.12 region. XLM would rebound from $0.12 at the start of 2021 and eventually break the falling trend line to reach $0.2 yesterday.
Today, XLM continued higher from $0.2 and exploded by over 100% to reach as high as $0.4 – taking the bulls in the market by surprise and pushing it to a new 31-month high. It has since dropped slightly from this high as is now trading near $0.32.
XLM-USD Short Term Price Prediction
Looking ahead, if the buyers push higher again, the first level of resistance lies at $0.35. This is followed by $0.373 (1.272 Fib Extension), $0.4 (1.414 Fib Extension & today’s high), and $0.418 (bearish .382 Fib Retracement).
Beyond $0.42, added resistance is expected at $0.443 (1.618 Fib Extension), $0.465 (April 2018 Highs), and $0.485.
On the other side, the first level of support beneath $0.3 lies at $0.289 (.236 Fib). This is followed by $0.257 (.5 Fib), $0.225 (.618 Fib), and $0.2.
As expected, the RSI is extremely overbought but is still yet to hit the November 2020 peak – suggesting there might be more room to move higher.

Today, XLM continued beyond 590 SAT to break above the 200-days EMA at 730 SAT and break beyond 1000 SAT. It continued above 1000 SAT until reaching 1130 SAT. From there, it dropped back beneath 1000 SAT and is now trading near 900 SAT.
