After posting over a 3% bearish drawdown in the last 24 hours, Yearn.Finance price is looking to print decent gains in the near term.

Yearn.Finance price flashes buy signal 

YFI price 4-hour chart generously seems to favor bulls. On a quick glance, the TD Sequential indicator setup presents a buy signal in the form of a green nine candlestick versus the greenback. 

A buy signal will be fully confirmed when a green two candlestick prints a longer denomination than the preceding green one candle. If this were to happen, Yearn.Finance price will likely rebound from the lower edge of a parallel channel that developed since December 11. 

Such market behavior could lead to a breakout to the channel’s middle or upper boundary. These resistance levels sit at $29,000 and $31,000, respectively.

But if it fails to do so, the DeFi token may take a nosedive towards the next support hurdles $23,800 or even $22,100.
