While Stellar is experiencing a short-term up trend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.
Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 0.00003052 where further sell stops could get triggered. Trading close to July's low at 0.00002911 we might see further downside momentum if potential sell stops at the level get activated.
