It’s the Harvest which does this for the users, and it’s audited through smart contracts, thereby saving the trouble of doing it all independently.”

Currently up about 90% on the day at the time of writing, FARM was up 144% at the session high. The rally comes after the coin gained 22% on Monday.
So far, FARM-USD has generated volume of more than 770,000 on Tuesday. That blows away the previous record-volume day of roughly 392,500. For the week though, volume sits at 852,000, just shy of the current weekly volume record of 1.055 million set in the second week of August.
Harvest Finance Crypto approached the $300 level this morning, which has been resistance. Fading from this area, FARM-USD will be trying to stay above $200. If it can’t, then the newly established 21-week moving average may be in play.
Above $217.50 keeps the 61.8% retracement in play, followed by this week’s current high of $289.
