- Yearn.finance immediate upside capped by the 50 SMA as bearish pressure intensifies.
- On-chain analysis suggests that the path with the least hurdles is downwards.
Yearn.finance has lost a great deal of its value since it traded an astronomical all-time high of $44,000. The 4-hour chart illustrates the several attempts made to regain the lost ground. However, buying pressure has continuously been thwarted. The biggest blow was the recent slide to $12,000. Luckily, buyers came to the rescue of the decentralized finance token.
A recovery ensued and tested the crucial level at $20,000. Several other critical zones remained unconquered, including the 50 Simple Moving Average (SMA), the long-term descending trendline, and the 100 SMA in the 4-hour timeframe.
Yearn.finance retreated again but this time, support seems to have been embraced above $15,000. The Relative Strength Index (RSI), nonetheless is forming a lower higher pattern, bringing into the picture the hovering selling activities.
YFI/USD 4-hour chart
It is essential that the 50 SMA resistance is broken soon to allow bulls to shift the focus to $20,000. However, the sellers’ grip is likely to continue intensifying putting more pressure on the short-term support at $15,000. Support at $12,000 is still intact and would hold in case an extended or sharp reversal comes into the picture.
