Stellar (XLM) has seen some notable underperformance of Bitcoin and the aggregated crypto market throughout 2019 and even 2020, largely being caught within an extended bout of sideways trading.
Analysts are now noting that the crypto just broke above an important technical level that it has been caught beneath for many years, with the movement past this level being a notable development that could mean major upside is imminent.
Other traders are taking note of Stellar’s growing technical strength, as some are explaining that it could now target an upside movement as large as 50% in the days and weeks ahead.
Stellar Just Posted a Notable Breakout as Crypto Market Grows Bullish
The entire crypto market has been building greater strength throughout the past several weeks, primarily being led higher by Bitcoin’s notable climb from its mid-March lows of $3,800.
It now appears that its technical strength is beginning to reach a boiling point, however, as it was just able to break above its Kumo cloud.
This marks the first break of this level that the cryptocurrency has seen since 2018, with this being a notable technical development that could mean it is about to see a parabolic uptrend.
Crypto analyst Josh Olszewicz spoke about this breakout in a recent tweet, saying:
“2D XLM (USD) first kumo breakout since 2018.”
XLM Could Rally 50% Due to This Strength
His reasoning behind this is that XLM has been caught within a year-long accumulation pattern, with the potential resolution to this pattern being enough to catapult it higher.
“XLM Accumulation. Has been trading sideways for almost a year. Once this breaks to the upside, this thing will run fast and hard. First target is +50% away from the range high,” he said.
How the crypto trends in the days ahead should offer significant insight into its mid-term trend, and it is a strong possibility that Bitcoin’s reaction to its current resistance will have heavy influence over that of Stellar.
