Key Takeaways:

  • Cream Finance’s native token CREAM touched $80 after a 115% rally since Jan 10.
  • The uptrend likely took cues from the upcoming Iron Bank token airdrop.

NEW DELHI ( — Decentralized lending protocol Cream Finance’s native token registered a massive 115% rally in three days to go from $37.1 on Jan 10 to a high of $80 on Jan 13. The token survived the recent US inflation-fueled crypto bear market, seeing Bitcoin lose 10% of its value.

Although the Cream token was bullish on the short-term time horizon, trading above its 50-day MA line, CREAM’s 53.5% jump on Thursday carried prices above its 100-day trendline as well. As such, the Cream token prices are currently bearish only in the long-term time frame.

Immediate resistance for CREAM is at $82. However, the further upside could see the Cream token price reaching $93.5. Moreover, a sustained uptrend could see CREAM move above $100 to challenge resistance at $106 before pullbacks occur.
