We will be analyzing this month’s performance of XLM in order to come up with a Stellar price prediction for the end of August.

In 2015, Stellar Lumens was moved to its own open-source protocol, thus eliminating significant weaknesses found in Ripple.
The Stellar Lumens (XLM) cryptocurrency was created to facilitate fast and cheap digital transactions.

On the 4th day, however, Stellar saw a slight increase from $0.081 to $0.082 by 1.28%. But this short growth spur stopped on day 5, the coin once again started slowly descending from $0.0829 to $0.0821 by 0.98%.

On August 14th XLM went below the $0.07 mark, reaching the lowest of that day $0.068. The following day, the lowest of the month was reached, with the coin having a price of $0.066.
The charts on August 16th showed two very important support levels which were at $0.066 and $0.065 respectively, but the support levels were not broken even during the weekend sell-off. The weekend tested the resistance level of the $0.070 price, but it was not surpassed, as predicted by analysts.
Since then, the coin has been fluctuating between the $0.07 and $0.06 mark, never managing to break $0.08. It is expected that if the coin reaches $0.08, the price will gain some momentum and get out of its bearish phase.
Even though XLM was anticipated to keep the momentum tight, such thing did not happen due to market pressure. The traders were quite positive about the coin, but it seems like they will have to wait longer for a Stellar rally to form. While long term there are positive prospects, day traders will not see much profit from the coin
From market technical analysis, XLM’s price against the USD dollar will continue to decrease on a long term period. Stellar’s price will also be dependent on Bitcoin’s performance, which is currently going seeing a downward progression.
