On the contrary, the Stellar Lumen price action might remain above the $0.08 fundamental support level. The immediate resistance zone is near $0.085, while the vital sell-off zone is near the $0.087 price level.

A surge past the $0.090 price level is a buy signal and would open up a way for Stellar price to test the $0.10 price level.
