AAVE started 2021 below 100 USD but in the first week of the year, managed to just barely exceed 100 USD.

Moderate volume drove the price sideways for a week.

In the third week of January, slim volume raised the AAVE price to 200 USD.

January closed with substantial trading on January 29 that eventually pushed the AAVE price above 300 USD.

February opened with AAVE rocketing above 400 USD on low volume, then going even farther with some substantial trading between 400-475 USD.

Low-volume trading in the second week of February brought the price above 500 USD, where it peaked around 525 USD.

AAVE has retraced in the third and fourth weeks of February, trading downwards with low volume in a price channel approximately 50 USD wide.

In the final week of February, the price bottomed out above 300 USD and is currently trading at 400 USD.
