Stellar's technical picture

XLM/USD reversed from the recent high of $0.1613 and got back into the intraday Bollinger Band amid technical correction. An intraday RSI points downwards, which means that the sell-off may gain traction with the next focus on $0.1330 (the middle line of 1-hour Bollinger Band). Once it is cleared, the sell-off is likely to gain traction with the following aim at $0.01217 (SMA50 1-hour) and $0.12.

On the upside, keep an eye on $0.16, followed by the recent high of $0.1630. The next strong resistance is created by SMA50 weekly at $0.1685.
