Stellar price has continued to travel south over the last 24 hours. On the last day, XLM lost more than 6% of its market value.
Stellar has recorded positive price sentiment recently, owing to an update that spread optimism across the XLM community.
In the latest update, Stellar users can now transfer USDC and Stellar Lumens via email. Despite the update, technical indicators have sided with the bears on the one-day chart.
The buying power has fallen considerably, even though the number of buyers is greater compared to the number of sellers.
In the last week, Stellar price went up close to 7%. However, at press time, the bulls look exhausted. The present support zone for XLM stands between $0.111 and $0.106, respectively.
A fall from the $0.106 mark will lead the Stellar price to touch the $0.99 price mark.
Broader market support will be necessary for most altcoins to recover. If buyers don’t pick up momentum and XLM doesn’t topple above the 20-SMA, then the altcoin is in for a further drop in price.

The Relative Strength Index was right on the half-line, and that is an indication of an even number of buyers and sellers.
