MKR (Maker DAO) started the year trading just above 500 USDT.

Moderate volume brought the price above 1000 USDT early in the second week of January.

Also in the second week, very high volume sold aggressively at 1100 USDT, then again at 1750 USDT.

The resistance at 1750 USDT was successful at driving the price back to 1250 USDT for the week.

In the third week, MKR traded sideways around 1500 USDT.

January closed with MKR remaining just under 1500 USDT.

February opened with a huge, low-volume drive up to 2500 USDT.  Once the price reached 2200 USDT, substantial volume entered the markets but the buyers persisted.

During the second and third weeks of February, MKR traded sideways in a channel anywhere from 50 USDT to 250 USDT wide.

The final week of February saw MKR fall to 2000 USDT on weak volume.

March started with low volume trading just above 2000 USDT.
