As the downward movement of the entire cryptocurrency market continues for the rest of the week, both Cardano (ADA) and Stellar Lumens (XLM) are struggling to reach their respective resistance points and are slightly on the bearish side of the trend. At the time of writing (12th July 2018), Cardano holds the eighth position on Coinmarketcap whereas Stellar Lumens is just one step ahead securing the seventh position. Below, you would find out the most recent price analyses of both of them against USD to have an idea about their future.
- High: 0.131508 USD
- Low: 0.127146 USD
- Major Resistance Level: 0.14 USD
- Hourly MACD: Placed slightly in the sell zone.
The price of this cryptocurrency is now veering around the $0.12 mark and following a downward trend. However, by applying tools like Fibonacci retracement, we can observe an indication of trend reversal very shortly. The difference between the moving averages is also gradually decreasing which also indicates the very same fact. The relative sell index (RSI), however remaining in the similar position might change the hourly MACD with its upward movement and bring the currency back to the buying zone. Also, Cardano has been in an advantageous position in comparison with Bitcoin for the most part of this week which provides it the edge required to change its current trend. If the moving averages continue to get closer, it will be just a matter of time that the red candles of bearish trend would change into green bullish ones.
Stellar Lumens (XLM/USD)
- High: 0.1899279 USD
- Low: 0.1860386 USD
- Major Resistance Level: 0.2200000 USD
- Hourly MACD: Placed slightly in the sell zone.
Stellar Lumens is sitting at the $0.187256 mark which still indicates a bearish trend with a decrease of 0.41% from its previous figure. Besides the US Dollar, XLM is also following a downward trend when compared to Bitcoin. Throughout this week, XLM has been trying to reach its resistance of 0.2200 USD mark. A few hours earlier, it got immensely close to that figure but rejected and came down below $0.18 mark with an RSI of 37.212. However, at this moment the value of the RSI is slightly on the higher side which might be a good omen for the traders across the globe. Similar to Cardano, the difference between the moving averages is also decreasing which might indicate a reversal in the current bearish trend. As per the breaking point in the upper trend line of the previous analysis, the bulls were defending the downward movement of the price from a psychological perspective and depending on the market sentiment.
The development team of XLM has been working hard in order to change the current scenario. On 10th July, this currency announced their support for a new start-up named London Football Exchange. Several partnerships and listings are still on the way for this currency which could change its market sentiment.
Based on this information, it can be inferred that despite the fact that both of these digital coins are slightly on the bearish side, a strong bull run is right in the corner.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity
While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle. Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance. One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess. That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS. These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there. While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.
What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?
In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount. There are several examples of this in our day to day lives. Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers. Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has. The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.
The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs. Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…
