With Bitcoin hovering around the $43,000 support level for several days, our previous BTC analysis remains pertinent. Here’s an in-depth review of the market situation for Stellar (XLM) and Internet Computer (ICP) as of Wednesday, January 31.

Stellar (XLM)

Currently, XLM is trapped in a sideways range between a support zone of $0.107–$0.100 and a resistance zone of $0.116–$0.119. Stellar's chart exhibits a downward local trend, indicating a possible breach of support followed by a further decline.

Should this occur, the asset might reset its local low to around $0.103. The trajectory of the subsequent correction will hinge on the Bitcoin behavior, given the high correlation between XLM and BTC rates.

To pivot towards an upward trajectory, XLM needs to challenge the seller's barrier at $0.122, aiming to reach the resistance zone of $0.124–$0.128. A stable position above $0.128 would signify the emergence of a strong market buyer.

Internet Computer (ICP)

Between October 15, 2023, and January 31, 2024, ICP saw an impressive surge of over 400%. Its yearly high was set on January 3 at $16.28, followed by a slight correction that persists.

Currently, ICP faces a resistance zone at $12.38–$13.3, which is restraining its upward momentum. If buyers manage to break through this range, they could target $14.21 and then confront the resistance between $15.05 and $16.28, possibly reaching new annual highs.

A continuation of the corrective trend could be triggered by negative trends in the BTC chart. Under such circumstances, ICP might dip below its local low of $8.6.
