Opportunities in the Stellar Market
The Stellar-to-Bitcoin price has been lately trending inside a giant Falling Wedge, confirmed by a minimum of two reaction highs and lows on each side.
One could first expect the price to jump between the range defined by the Wedge. As the area contracts, the price volume would see a dip. Most probably, there would be a breakout to the upside after Stellar hits the apex of the Wedge, confirmed by a sudden spike in volume. That is the only bullish opportunity one can view in the current Stellar market scenario.
On the first sign of a breakout, traders could look to enter a Long position towards 1246 sats. An extended buying action could take the XLM price further to 1628 sats.
