Stellar (XLM) is among the few altcoins recording gains in the last 24 hours as the market engages in lackluster trading ahead of a major move.
At the moment, the price of XLM is $0.158, up 12% from the previous day. In the past seven days, XLM has increased 11%.
A promising sign for the XLM price is the bullish crossing of the daily moving averages MA 50 and MA 200, also known as the "golden cross."
A chart pattern known as a "golden cross" occurs when a short-term moving average crosses above a long-term moving average. A golden cross, which frequently refers to the strong confirmation of a long-term trend, denotes a long-term bull market going forward.
Following XLM's climb to highs of $0.18, a bull flag pattern is also developing on the daily XLM chart.
Traders should keep an eye out for the rally to continue in the coming days. A breach above $0.20 could mark the beginning of a new rise for Stellar XLM.
