XLM/USD, the technical picture

On the intraday charts, the initial resistance is created by a combination of SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) and the middle line of the Bollinger Band on 4-hour chart (currently at $0.0750). We will need to see a sustainable move above this handle for the downside to gain traction with the next focus on psychological $0.0700 that coincides with SMA100 daily and an upside trendline from October 23 low at $0.0571. 

Once it is out of the way, the sell-off is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $0.0667 (SMA100 daily) and $0.0650 (SMA50 daily).

On the upside, we will need to see a sustainable move above the psychological $0.0800 for the recovery to gain traction. This area is strengthened by the upper line of the Bollinger Band on 4-hour chart and closely followed by Sunday's high of $0.0815. The next resistance comes at $0.0846 (the highest level of November 5.
