How to analyze the token?


I will Analyze this coin using the YFI/USDT crypto pair on TradingView. I have applied the Japanese candlestick chart which connect sensitive information like opening and closing price, high and low swing points. I have also added EMA crossing strategy and RSI to help identify direction of trend and spot entry position.

First of all, I will be doing a scalping trade and to identify the general trend I have used different timeframes of 30 and 15 minutes.

chart from TradingView

The charts above are 30 and 15 minutes YFIUSDT chart. On both charts, we have seen that three lower points are identify and a support trendline is drawn through these points. Price rebounded on the support trendline several times and bounce upwards for bullish trend continuation. The general trend was identified to be bullish by different timeframes.

I will be doing a scalping trade so I have selected a 5-minutes timeframe of YFIUSDT chart and marked resistance and support level.

chart from TradingView

On the chart above, as price was making higher-highs pattern with price rebounding from the support trendline indicating bullish trend continuation, the EMA crossing strategy was employed to identify direction. 20-period EMA (blue) crossed above 50-period EMA (red) indicating the presents of bullish trend. From the RSI indicator, a confirmation was seen when the lined bridged the mid-mark upwards. I marked my entry point at this region.

To further confirmed signal, I added the Ichimoku cloud indicator to the chart.

On the same chart above, we saw that Ichimoku cloud started to trade below price and formed green color along, given a confluence to RSI and EMA crossing for bullish trend and confirming my entry position. I marked a take profit level at $24,858.57 little above the previous resistance level and stop loss level at $23,187.30 just below the support trendline.

On my Binance exchange, I open a spot limit order for YFI at $23,950.00. Afterwards, I placed an OCO order to target my take profit at $24,858.57. and stop limit at $23,187.30. Below are my order details.

My Plan to Hold YFI long or Sell


I have marked take profit level and stop loss level on the chart above, this is scalp trading and I will exit the market should in case my take profit level is attained or my stop loss level is hit. I don't have any intentions of holding on to the coin for long term but in case there is trading opportunities in future, I scalp again to make profit. YFI has a promising future which makes it a good potential investment.


Would I recommend people to Buy YFI


The project Yearn.finance aid investors to earn from their assets by locking it in a liquidity pool. To participate in this yield farming practice with Yearn.finance, traders will have to buy YFI as it is used to pay withdrawal fees.

YFI has attained an all-time price higher than BTC and still in great dip. This is a good time to buy and hold onto YFI for future benefit before it triggered to target its all-time high price.

YFI is a volatile token of which scalpers can spot good trading opportunities. YFI can be recommended for both scalpers and swing traders but on the basis of the know-how of technical, fundamental and sentimental analysis.
