- Yearn Finance’s native token, YFI, started a year-end rally on Dec 29 that saw it jump by over 51%.
NEW DELHI (CoinChapter.com) — Yield optimizer platform Yearn Finance’s Dec-end rally continued into the new year, as the platform’s native token YFI surged to gain more than 51% in just over four days.
The YFI price jumped to nearly $42,000 on Monday before prices pulled back. The relative strength index for the token is near the overbought region, clocking 67.98 on the daily charts. However, the RSI trendline receded as prices pulled back after Monday’s 9% jump.
Yearn Finance prices challenged the $42,100 resistance level on Jan 3, but the rally was rebuffed. If bulls manage to push past YFI’s immediate resistance, Yearn Finance could see prices reach near $44,500. If RSI holds inside neutral regions, the YFI coin might rise to challenge the $46,000 price level before prices pare.
On the other hand, if retail traders try to profit from the Yearn token’s ongoing rally, the resulting sell-off might push prices to immediate resistance near $38,700. Moreover, decreasing volumes coupled with the rising RSI levels likely indicate a price correction in the works for YFI.
Falling volumes might suggest that trader conviction in the token’s upside movement is weak.
Additionally, Yearn Finance is bullish across all time horizons as it trades above its 50-day, 100-day, and 200-day MA trendlines. Meanwhile, the trend-based momentum oscillator returned to bullish levels on Dec 31. Yearn Finance’s momentum had turned bearish for a day on Dec 30.
The MACD line (difference between 12-day and 26-day EMA) moved above the MACD signal line (9-day EMA of MACD) on Dec 31, plotting a bullish crossover. Since then, bars are on the MACD histogram are expanding, indicating strengthening bullish momentum for YFI.

Yearn Finance’s current rally seems to take bullish hints from a proposal to change YFI’s tokenomics. The proposal plans to distribute a part of YFI bought back by the team as a reward to YFI token owners that actively participate in Yearn Finance governance.
The proposal is currently in its voting phase.
The divergence between prices and volumes coupled with overbought risks might see YFI lose some of its recent gains. At the time of writing, it was trading at $40,378, up 3.14% on the day.
