Stellar price crashes, bulls see an opportunity to buy the dip
Although Stellar price plummeted by more than 18% in just 24 hours, from a high of $0.294 to a low of $0.227, bulls bought the dip quickly. XLM is already trading at $0.276 at the time of writing, almost gaining all back in less than 24 hours.
XLM/USD daily chart
This is certainly a major indicator that the bulls are very much alive; however, they still need to establish a few short-term uptrends. The most significant resistance point on the 4-hour chart is located at $0.29, which coincides with the 50-SMA and the 100-SMA levels. A breakout above this point would be a clear shift in momentum for the bulls with the potential to drive Stellar price up to $0.32.

On the other hand, a rejection from $0.29 could also lead XLM into a new leg down as there is little support below $0.30. The most significant level for the crypto to move downwards is located at $0.227.
