3. Technical Analysis on Stellar
3.1. Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP)
VWAP is a technical indicator used by a trader to gauge the overall trend of an asset price movement. VWAP line (orange line) represents the volume-weighted average price (average price here is defined as the average of high, low and close prices) while close price line (blue line) represents the price when XLM is closed at the end of every single day.
Whenever blue line (close price) is above orange line (VWAP), it indicates that the asset is gaining momentum and being traded higher than its average price level. This would represent a 'buy' opportunity for short-term momentum trader whom task is to trade following the trend while a longer term mean-revision trader might take it as a 'sell' opportunity, anticipating that the price of XLM (blue line) to fall to its average level (orange line).
Whenever blue line (close price) is below orange line (VWAP), it indicates that the asset is losing momentum and being traded lower than its average price level. This would represent a 'sell' opportunity for short-term momentum trader whom task is to trade following the trend while a longer term mean-revision trader might take it as a 'buy' opportunity, anticipating that the price of XLM (blue line) to rise to its average level (orange line).
As of 07 May 2021, VWAP is suggesting that XLM is trading higher than its average price range of USD 0.55 to USD 0.55.
3.2. Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD)
MACD is often used by trader as a momentum indicator. There are 2 lines that form the above charts, namely MACD (12, 26) lines and Signal(9) line, while the histogram is calculated by subtracting Signal (9) from MACD (12,26). Histogram would fall to the negative territory whenever MACD (12, 26) is trending at a lower level than Signal (9) and rise to the positive territory whenever MACD (12,26) is trending at a higher level than Signal (9).
MACD (12, 26) is computed by subtracting the 26-day exponential moving average (EMA) of XLM closing price from its 12-day EMA.
Signal (9) on the other hand is calculated as the 9-day EMA of MACD (12,26).
As MACD (12, 26) goes higher away from Signal (9), it signifies that XLM is gaining momentum and whenever it goes trends at a lower level than Signal (9),it signifies that XLM is losing momentum.
As of 07 May 2021, MACD is suggesting that XLM is gaining a lot of momentum.
3.3. Bollinger Band
Bollinger band is often being used by mean-reversion trader as a gauge to assess how undervalued or overvalued an asset is. Its chart made up of 4 lines, namely:
- SMA (20) (blue line), which is the 20-day simple moving average price of XLM
- Upper Band (orange line), which is computed by adding 2 standard deviations of XLM on SMA (20)
- Lower Band (red line) , which is computed by subtracting 2 standard deviations of XLM from SMA (20)
- Close (green line), which is the daily closing price of XLM
Whenever close line (green) touches the lower band (red), it indicates that XLM is corrected too much and is being traded at an undervalued level, representing a 'buy' opportunity. On the other hand, whenever close line (green) touches the upper band (orange), it indicates that XLM is gaining too much momentum and is being traded at an overvalued level, thus indicating a 'sell' opportunity.
As of 07 May 2021, Bollinger Band is suggesting that XLM is currently trading at an overbought (overvalued) level.
3.4. Relative Strength Index (RSI)
Just like Bollinger Band, Relative Strength Index is often being used by mean-reversion trader as a gauge to assess how undervalued or overvalued an asset is. There are 2 psychological levels, i.e. 30 and 70 in RSI. Whenever the RSI reaches 30, it indicates that XLM is corrected too much and is being traded at an undervalued level, representing a 'buy' opportunity. On the other hand, whenever RSI reaches 70, it indicates that XLM is gaining too much momentum and is being traded at an overvalued level, thus indicating a 'sell' opportunity.
As of 07 May 2021, RSI is suggesting that XLM is trading at an overbought (overvalued) level in the 14-day window.
Based on the technical analysis presented above, quantdoge thinks that XLM has been gaining some upside momentum in the past days to the extent that it has been overly bought, and it has a fair chance to undergo short-term price correction which sees its price being brought down to a lower level, but I could be wrong, hence please make your careful due diligence before making any financial decision.
4. Stellar Risk Profile
Based on the 100-day 95% historical Value-at-Risk (VaR) profile of Stellar defined above, XLM seems to trade at a lower risk level on 07 May 2021 as compared to 10 days before on 27 Apr 2021, with its biggest pullback being seen at 18.19% on a single day during the last 100 days. However, I could be wrong, hence please make your careful due diligence before making any financial decision.
