Aave is on the verge of a descending wedge breakdown, emphasizing the bearish grip.
LEND/USD to seek support at the 50 EMA and the range between $0.50 and $0.45 if selling pressure mounts.
Aave currently holds the third position in decentralized finance (DeFi) as far as the total value locked is concerned. Data by DeFi Pulse shows that Aave has $1.52 billion of valued locked, following a 2.45% loss in the last 24 hours. UniSwap currently holds in the first position with over $2 billion of locked funds. It is followed closely by Maker with $1.95 billion.
Meanwhile, Aave is exchanging hands at $0.56 after running into a barrier at $0.60. Its immediate downside is protected by the 100 Exponential Moving Average in the 4-hour range. The relative Strength Index (RSI) in the same range shows that bears are taking back control over the price. The RSI made a steady recovery from the overbought on September 21 but hit a snag slightly above 60. The ongoing retreat puts emphasis on the downtrend.
If the price drops below the immediate support (100 EMA), LEND could easily spiral to the next support provided by the 50 EMA. Note that, such a move would confirm a breakdown below the ascending wedge pattern, hence the possibility of the downtrend extending to the support in the range between $0.45 and $0.50.
For now, the cryptoasset is in the hands of the bulls but buyers are not ready to give up control. Therefore, if the Aave holds above the 100 EMA and gives way for consolidation, bulls will have ample time to forge another attack on the critical level at $0.60, thereby restarting another bullish trend.
