  • AAVE large volume holders remain optimistic despite the recent correction from $95.
  •  A break under the descending channel’s boundary will add credibility to the downtrend eyeing $70.

Aave recently resumed the downtrend, sabotaging an anticipated recovery, targeting $80. A descending parallel channel has also come into the picture, suggesting that declines may continue in the near term.

AAVE downward momentum intensifies

The decentralized finance (DeFi) token made a considerable rebound following the losses incurred earlier this week. A December high at $95 created a barrier, which cut short the rally to price levels above $100.

AAVE is trading at $79 when writing in the wake of a rejection suffered at the 50 Simple Moving Average. The bulls’ main aim is to keep the price above the channel’s middle boundary. However, more losses will be confirmed if AAVE closed the day under $80.

On the downside, the 100 SMA is in line to prevent the token from falling sharply. The 200 SMA at $70 seems like the most robust support level. It would come in handy if AAVE/USD dived under the descending channel. The Relative Strength Index adds credibility to the bearish narrative as it slopes toward the oversold area.
