Is AAVE on the path to a bullish breakout?
This new revelation about ETH whales meant AAVE was building up bullish demand at the time of writing. This made it one of the most interesting tokens to watch for towards mid-week, as this might trigger a resurgence of bullish demand and more volatility. But investors need to look at where AAVE was in terms of price activity to understand the potential impact.
AAVE’s $60.16 press time price represented a slight premium from its $58.25 low in the last 24 hours. This confirmed that there was indeed some bullish pressure coming into the market. But was it enough to support more upside?
AAVE’s volume registered a slight uptick in the last 24 hours, confirming its increased trading activity. However, the uptick was relatively low, thus explaining why the price did not achieve a substantial bounce. Despite this, there was a sizable increase in the number of daily active addresses.
AAVE investors may find it interesting that the coin’s address flows increased in the last 24 hours until press time. Even more noteworthy is that receiving addresses outweighed the sending addresses by almost double. In other words, there is a net higher buy pressure than sell pressure in the market.
The supply distribution side of things revealed that most top addresses have not added or subtracted from their balances in the last 24 hours.
This is particularly the case for addresses holding 100,000 – 10 million AAVE. Nevertheless, there was some selling pressure from addresses in the 10,000 – 100,000 bracket.
Addresses in the 100 – 10,000 range have steadily accumulated in the last two days, thus canceling out most of the selling pressure.
What to expect moving forward
The above observations might indicate that investors were increasing their demand for AAVE as of 13 December. Thus, the coin may experience more volatility in the next few days if the same trend continues. The fact that the current demand is backed by ETH whales is already good news for AAVE bulls.
