Top 3 Coins To Watch Today: SOL, XLM, XTZ – October 5 Trading Analysis

October 05, 2021, 8:00 AM AEST - 1 week ago

Let’s take a closer look at today’s altcoins showing breakout signals. We’ll explain what the coin is, then dive into the trading charts and provide some analysis to help you decide.

1. Solana (SOL)

Solana SOL is a highly functional open source project that banks on blockchain technology’s permissionless nature to provide decentralised finance (DeFi) solutions. The Solana protocol is designed to facilitate decentralised app (DApp) creation. It aims to improve scalability by introducing a proof-of-history (PoH) consensus combined with the underlying proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus of the blockchain.

SOL Price Analysis

At the time of writing, SOL is ranked the 6th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is A$228.74. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

August’s 150% rally ended with a drop as early October reached the 58.6% retracement level of SOL‘s last bullish leg.

The price is currently testing possible support beginning near A$218.34, just below the October open. Some bulls might be buying here, but many may be waiting for the price to show a willingness to move up from this level.

Below, just under the October monthly open and 41.8% retracement level of a more significant bullish swing, the area near A$203.65 could provide more substantial support. However, if the price reaches this far, it’s likely to touch possible support near A$192.05 around the 68.6% retracement level.

Near-term, the top of the mid-September consolidation near A$245.38 may provide resistance. A break through this level could reach near the last significant swing high with resistance likely to begin near A$261.70. 

2. Stellar (XLM)

Stellar XLM is an open network that allows money to be moved and stored. When it was released in July 2014, one of its goals was boosting financial inclusion by reaching the world’s unbanked – but soon after, its priorities shifted to helping financial firms connect with one another through blockchain technology. The network’s native token, lumens, serves as a bridge that makes it less expensive to trade assets across borders. All of this aims to challenge existing payment providers who often charge high fees for a similar service.

XLM Price Analysis

At the time of writing, XLM is ranked the 26th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is A$0.4147. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

XLM kicked August off with a nearly 85% rally, spiking through the Q3 highs before testing possible support at the old high’s candle body near A$0.4011.

This area could provide support, although any sharp downturn in the market is likely to drive the price towards possible support around the current range’s EQ and the 9 EMA, near A$0.3756. A surge of traders selling during this week could pressure the price back down into accumulation before the next bull trend begins.

If bulls fail to step in at the possible mid-range support, a deeper retracement to possible support near A$0.3488 is likely. This area has confluence with the 61.8% retracement level, 18 EMA, and 40 EMA.

The highs near A$0.4597 are likely to provide some short-term resistance. However, a break of this level brings attention to the round numbers at A$0.4933 and A$0.5316 as the next probable resistances where bulls might take profits.

3. Tezos (XTZ)

Tezos XTZ is a blockchain network that’s based on smart contracts, in a way that’s not too dissimilar to Ethereum. However, there’s a big difference: Tezos aims to offer infrastructure that is more advanced – meaning it can evolve and improve over time without any danger of a hard fork. This is something that both Bitcoin and Ethereum have suffered since they were created. People who hold XTZ can vote on proposals for protocol upgrades that have been put forward by Tezos developers.

XTZ Price Analysis

At the time of writing, XTZ is ranked the 26th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is A$11.89. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

XTZ‘s 285% rally since mid-July saw a second leg after last week’s market-wide drop ran the previous consolidation’s stops.

The level near A$11.95 is providing some resistance. However, continuation through the all-time high at A$12.23 is not out of the question. Aggressive bulls might bid in the current region near A$11.82. 

If the price runs the recent swing low, bulls might bid in the gap near A$11.25. A deeper retracement could reach near the mid-September level and a gap near A$10.76. The region near A$9.83 and A$9.35 may also provide some support during a deeper retracement.
