As we take a close look at the charts of XRP price and Stellar (XLM) price, it’s important to focus an unemotional and clear view on the raw technicals to find an edge as far as tone and levels looking forward.
XRP price has taken a beating. Plain and simple. There are no two ways about it. It has been an awful beating at that.
XRP price has fallen nearly 50% over the past month, shattering a key support level at the $0.43 zone and then accelerating lower in a waterfall decline that has outpaced most other large coins over the same period in terms of pure downside action.
At this point, the coin is still sporting the bare minimum as far as a bullish hourly MACD divergence. At the same time, support at the $0.28 level has been busted up pretty badly, opening the trapdoor to test the $0.25 level.
As we noted in our analysis earlier this week, the ultimate support here for XRP may possibly be found at the $0.20 level. In addition, traders should note that the 14-day RSI measure is now printing new all-time record lows, which may support a near-term bounce.
Unlike XRP, Stellar (XLM) has been managing to hold well above both its late June lows and late March lows. In other words, Stellar (XLM) has been a clear relative outperformer.
That said, we are also seeing selling here.
Everything is relative when you start to talk about asset class-wide analytics from a technical perspective. In this case, we tend to compare the large market cap coins against one another, and against Bitcoin. For Stellar (XLM), we have a clear case of relative strength that has been in place throughout the summer.
While we broke below the 50-day moving average, we haven’t broken under the bullish pivot formed in late June, which has been a clear reference point for many large-cap coins.
Our current read here is relatively promising given the devastation that we have seen across the complex.
However, one must admit that the larger time frame chart for Stellar (XLM) does appear to be a bearish descending triangle. In other words, bottom picking here – while supported by relative strength metrics – may not be for the faint of heart.
