This is based on Chainlink’s historical price action
The average gain during this time period is estimated at 160%
Chainlink could have potentially hit a local bottom after reaching a local low of $11.40
Crypto markets continue to be potentially volatile given the Russia/Ukraine conflict
The digital asset of Chainlink (LINK) could be gearing up for a period of positive gains between the months of April and August. This is according to crypto analyst Timothy Peterson of Cane Island Alternative Investors who pointed out that the price forecast of Chainlink was based on historical data. Furthermore, if history is to repeat itself during this time period, Chainlink could experience average gains of 160%.
A quick glance at the daily LINK/USDT chart below reveals that Chainlink is currently on a path towards reclaiming the crucial $15 price as support. This is after the digital asset hit a local low of $11.40 following the crypto market selloff as a result of Russian forces entering Ukraine earlier this week.
From the chart, it can be observed that Chainlink’s current price was last witnessed in July 2021 and January 2021. Furthermore, Chainlink is in bear territory as it is trading below the 50-day moving average (white), 100-day moving average (yellow), and 200-day moving average.
However, the daily MFI, MACD, and RSI are hinting at an oversold scenario that could point towards a trend reversal by Chainlink (LINK) in the days to follow.
Caution is Advised When Trading Chainlink During the Russia/Ukraine Crisis
Doing the math a 160% price increment from the local low of $11.40 translates to a value of roughly $30 if Mr. Peterson’s forecast plays out in the stated time period.
However, traders are reminded that the crypto and traditional markets are very volatile given the geopolitical tensions between Russia and Ukraine. Wars cause inflation as well as panic selling as investors try to protect their hard-earned capital from the fluctuating markets.
