Yearn.Finance (YFI) Surges 120% Since Recent December Lows

Yearn.Finance (YFI) is showing strong bullish signs after bouncing from its Dec lows. However, it has to break out from the current pattern in order to confirm the bullish reversal.

YFI had been trading above the $27,200 horizontal support area since the beginning of May. In addition to this, it has been increasing alongside an ascending support line. 

It broke down from the line on Nov 28 (red circle) and proceeded to reach a low of $17,699 on Dec 4.

However, YFI initiated a rapid upward movement on Dec 15 and reclaimed both the $27,200 area and the ascending support line the next day. This is a decisive bullish sign, since it renders the previous breakout as a deviation only.

Technical indicators are also bullish, supporting the continuation of the upward movement. 

The MACD has crossed into positive territory. This is a staple of bullish trends, since it means that the short-term trend is faster than the long-term one. 

The RSI has crossed above 50. This is also a sign of bullish momentum. 

Therefore, the daily time-frame suggests that the trend is bullish and YFI will continue increasing.
