Chainlink Price Analysis
On the above chart, the price trend of LINK/USD is drawing a notable uptrend for the past ten days. After a complete flattish move, Chainlink has gained enough impetus as it trades beyond $10, at the press time. However, intraday has been experiencing constant pullbacks leading to bearish bias in the market. With recent bullish candlewick, the current price of LINK is hitting the upper 20-day Bollinger Band, but we do not predict any unprecedented volatile breakout.
Chainlink is holding support from MA50 & MA200 at $8.9 & $7.6 price area on a 4-hourly chart. The MACD line is now extending towards having a bullish divergence by overlapping the signal line after a complete bearish bias for the past three days now. Similarly, the RSI is at 69.03, which also reflects the possibility of the continuation of the uptrend. The major support and resistance to watch out for lies at $9 and $10.5, respectively.
