AAVE investors should be cautious about this patterned breakout

Disclaimer: The findings of the following analysis are the sole opinions of the writer and should not be considered investment advice

  • AAVE chalked up a bearish pennant chart pattern
  • AAVE holders still suffering losses since the market crash

After Bitcoin [BTC] flipped resistance at $16.5K into support, AAVE also converted $58.1 into support in the intraday session. 

At press time, AAVE was trading at $59.5, up by about 3% in the last 24 hours. The king coin also recorded gains, setting AAVE up for a possible breakout from its 2-week bearish pennant pattern.

Given the unfolding story on the impact of Genesis’s FTX exposure, any bearish BTC sentiment will send AAVE further below the $57-support level.

AAVE chalks a bearish pennant – A bloodbath in waiting?

The recent market crash caused AAVE to fall from its November ATH at $98. The recent rallies ended with lower highs with the same lower lows, resulting in a bearish pennant pattern. Bearish pennant patterns are trend continuation patterns so, a further drop in AAVE prices is likely in the next few days. 

The RSI has been moving sideways after retreating from the oversold territory. This suggests that the sellers are still in control, despite easing selling pressure. In addition, the On Balance Volume (OBV) hasn’t crossed the October threshold, indicating that AAVE is yet to record solid bullish recovery. 

As a result, the bearish flag pattern could facilitate a trend continuation. The sellers may push AAVE lower. If sentiment on BTC also turns bearish, AAVE could fall further. Sellers can expect new support levels at $49.6 and $48.2.

However, a session close above $64.1 will invalidate the bearish inclination.

A confirmed breakout on the upside would allow entry into a long position with $70.7 as the primary target. The bearish order block at $86.1 and the 0.236 Fib level ($64.1) may also be secondary targets.  

Holders suffer losses despite improved sentiment

An analysis of Santiment’s data revealed that AAVE enjoyed positive weighted sentiment at press time. 

However, positive sentiment is still insufficient to protect AAVE holders from losses. The 30-day market value to realized value ratio (MVRV) remained in negative territory. This shows that short-term AAVE holders are still suffering losses since the market collapse on 8 November.

AAVE investors should therefore monitor the king coin’s sentiment before making any move on the possible patterned breakout.

Assessing what’s next for Yearn Finance (YFI) as we gear up to close Q4

Assessing what’s next for Yearn Finance (YFI) as we gear up to close Q4

  • YFI suffers a bearish divergence that indicates a decline in buying momentum.
  • Sellers take control of the YFI market during the intraday trading session.

Despite the growth in the price per Yearn Finance (YFI) token, the count of daily active addresses on the network continues to fall, data from Santiment revealed. 

As of this writing, YFI traded at $7,027.16. In the last week, its price went up by 7%, per data from CoinMarketcap.

With just 248 unique addresses involved in YFI transactions at press time, the number of daily active addresses that have traded the alt has fallen consistently by 41% in the last week.

YFI’s price and the count of its active addresses moving in opposite directions create a bearish divergence that precedes a price drawdown. 

Likewise, a price/trading volume divergence was spotted on a daily chart. As YFI’s price rallied by 3% in the last 24 hours, its trading volume fell by 25% within the same period.

This was an indication of exhaustion among the current buyers in the YFI market and marked a potential re-entrance point for sellers. As a result, new demand would be required to drive up the alt’s price further.  

However, data from Santiment showed that new demand for YFI has declined since the beginning of the month. As of this writing, 59 new addresses were on the YFI network. In the last eight days, this has fallen by 48%.

Day traders are not smiling 

An assessment of YFI’s performance on a 4-hour chart revealed that sellers had control of the intraday market. Selling pressure rallied as daily traders shied away from accumulating the alt.

At press time, the dynamic line (green) of YFI’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) rested below the center line to return a negative value of -0.07. A fall of an asset’s CMF below the center line usually indicates that the token’s distribution rate exceeds its accumulation rate within a specified period. A negative CMF is an indication of weakened buying pressure.

Furthermore, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) was spotted at 48.97 in a downtrend. Stationed below the 50-neutral region facing south, selling pressure rallied as more buyers exited the YFI market. Likewise, its Money Flow Index (MFI) was pegged at 45.85 at press time.

The position of the Directional Movement Index (DMI) confirmed the strength of YFI sellers during the intraday trading session. 

The sellers’ strength (red) at 23.67 was solidly above the buyers’ (green) at 16.03. Additionally, the Average Directional Index (ADX) showed that the seller’s strength was a difficult one that buyers might find impossible during the day’s trading session.

Uniswap NFT volume declines by a great margin, but here’s the catch

Uniswap NFT volume declines by a great margin, but here’s the catch

  • Uniswap witnessed a decline in NFT volume lately.
  • This decline affected other areas of the DEX, including the count of unique users and overall transactions.

All eyes were on Uniswap during the launch of their NFT protocol. There was growth observed on multiple fronts due to this launch. However, according to data provided by Dune, it appeared that the hype around Uniswap had started to decline, at press time. 


                                  Read Uniswap’s Price Prediction 2023-2024


Short-lived hype

From the image below it can be observed that the NFT volume on Uniswap declined over the past few days. The daily volume for the NFTs traded on Uniswap went from $246k to $32k since its launch.  The number of daily transactions for the same decreased from 445 to 35, at the time of writing.

This decline in NFT activity has impacted the DEX negatively. According to Messari,’s data, the number of unique users on Uniswap had fallen by 9.7% and the number of overall transactions being made on the DEX had declined by 28.87% in the last seven days.

Furthermore, in the image below, it can be seen that after the spike caused by the NFT launch, the daily active addresses for UNI declined. Along with that, UNI’s transaction count and velocity also took a hit.

Interestingly enough, these indicators did not deter whales from investing in UNI.

According to WhaleStats, an organization dedicated to tracking crypto whales, Uniswap had been amongst the top 10 most purchased tokens by the top 1000 Ethereum whales.

This spike in interest can be credited to the increase in active developers on the Uniswap system.

The ongoing actions in the NFT space may result in interest being regenerated and it could reflect onto UNI’s positive price action.

That said, at the time of writing, UNI was trading at $5.96 and its price had increased by 0.91% over the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.

Layer 2 networks see jump in dApp migration; the reason might surprise you

Layer 2 networks see jump in dApp migration; the reason might surprise you

  • dApps have increased migration to layer 2 networks.
  • Arbitrum continues to lead as the layer 2 network with the highest TVL

Gas fees spent by layer 2 (L2) Ethereum scaling solutions to settle proofs on Ethereum have clinched an all-time high as decentralized applications (dApps) native to layer 1 networks increase migration to L2s, a new report from Messari showed. 

L2 networks are separate blockchains that extend the functionalities of the Ethereum network and inherit the security guarantees of Ethereum. Transactions are executed on these L2s and then batched up to the base layer, Ethereum. 

To settle proofs of these batched-up transactions on Ethereum, L2s are required to pay gas fees for the network’s security. 

Therefore, as more applications and their users migrate to these L2s, ramping up the number of transactions processed and batched, the amount paid as gas fees to settle proofs by L2s has also rallied to an all-time high.

For example, in September, leading NFTs marketplace OpenSea announced support for leading L2 network Arbitrum. In the same month, the cryptocurrency trading platform Matcha, confirmed its deployment on Arbitrum. Likewise, in October,  leading Ethereum [ETH] staking platform Lido Finance announced its launch on two L2 networks, Arbitrum and Optimism.

Arbitrum takes the lead

According to data from L2Beat, with a total value locked (TVL) of $2.30 billion, Arbitrum ranks as the top L2 platform in today’s market.

Due to its Nitro upgrade launched in August, Arbitrum “can support 7-10x higher throughput and has advanced compression techniques that allow for cheaper transactions, which attracts more activity,” Messari found.

This upgrade has led to a significant surge in the number of daily transactions processed on the L2 network.

Furthermore, as FTX’s unexpected collapse eroded investors’ trust in centralized cryptocurrency exchanges, many investors moved to decentralized exchanges. 

This contributed to Arbitrum’s growth in the last month, as GMX, a “decentralized exchange (DEX) for perpetuals native to Arbitrum and Avalanche, experienced a significant volume increase during the FTX fiasco,” Messari reported. 

On 7 November, GMX logged $5 billion in margin trading volume, a 75% rally from the previous day.

Following FTX’s implosion, DEX tokens have been outperforming CEX tokens over the past week:

Not far behind

Optimism has also benefitted from the increased migration of dApps to L2 in the past few months. Messari found that in the last three months, the count of transacting addresses on the network rallied by 120%.

Per data from Etherscan, the network saw its highest daily number of transactions (499,720) on 9 November in the heat of the FTX saga.
