Coin screening and technical analysis platform altFINS wrote in a note on XMR Monday morning: “Ascending Triangle has broken through the resistance line at April 10, 0:00 UTC. Possible bullish price movement forecast for the next nine days towards 261.3370.” Ascending Triangle is a chart pattern used in technical analysis. 

XMR was trading at $239.4 at 09:30 UTC and despite its latest gains, XMR is still 54% down from its all-time high of $517.6 recorded on 7 May 2022. 

Monero uses privacy-enhancing features for user anonymity, and XMR has performed well in the wake of concerns that the European Union would crackdown on the privacy of cryptocurrency users within its anti-money laundering rules.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
