Will XEM be successful in reaching the targets? Continue reading below if you are interested in finding out.

Downward Trend

The XEM price has been down-trending since January 2018. The weekly RSI perfectly highlights this, since it decreased below the 50-line shortly afterward and has been below since.

Beginning in May 2019, the weekly RSI began to generate a bullish divergence and moved above the 50-line on January 31 — 756 days after the January 2018 high. This is a strong sign of a trend reversal, especially since it is succeeding a lengthy period of bullish divergence.

XEM Downward Trend

Our resistance areas slightly differ from those in the tweet. The first major resistance area is found at 800 satoshis, an area that previously has acted as support.

While there is minor resistance at 1000 satoshis, the next important resistance area is likely found at 14000 satoshis.

XEM Weekly

Resistance Line Breakout

On January 31, the date that the weekly RSI moved above 50, the price indeed broke out from a 448-day descending resistance line. The line had been validated numerous times, so combining this breakout with the weekly analysis we can presume that the price has indeed reversed its long-term trend and is now bullish.

XEM REsistance Line Breakout

Looking closer at this movement, we can see that a bullish cross between the 50- and 200-day moving averages (MA) has just transpired, otherwise known as a golden cross. This further confirms that the price has already begun an upward trend.

In addition, it is possible that the price is following a very steep ascending support line.

XEM Golden Cross

Short-Term XEM Movement

The six-hour chart shows the ascending support line more clearly, and a possibly-developing resistance line — which combines to create an ascending channel.

If the XEM price continues to increase at the rate predicted by the channel, it should reach the 800 satoshi resistance area by February 17.

On the contrary, in case of a breakdown, the closest support area is found at 600 satoshis. We do not believe this is likely, both because of the long-term outlook and the short-term RSI bounce at the 50-line.

XEM Ascending Channel

To conclude, the XEM price broke out on January 31 and began an upward trend. We believe the increase will continue until the price reaches at least one of the resistance areas outlined above.
