$12 is ChainLink’s new Battlezone
In terms of price movement, LINK has since turned the $12 price area into support after the impressive move to $12.42 partly due to this week’s news of PayPal offering crypto-services to its users. The daily LINK/USDT is still exhibiting some bullishness with a possibility of ChainLink retesting $13 or even $15 if the crypto market maintains its current market environment.
ChainLink’s bullishness can also be observed via the following on the daily LINK/USDT chart.
Trade volume is in the green with the MACD in neutral territory at slightly above the baseline
The daily MFI is in neutral territory at 58
The daily RSI is also in neutral territory at 62
ChainLink’s price is above the 50, 100 and 200-day moving averages
ChainLink is currently ranging between $11.50 and $12.42 with the $12 price being the mean of this range
Summing it up, the top 10 ChainLink whales now hold 648.6 million LINK outside crypto exchanges. This value is a new high since July 1st, 2019 indicating growing confidence in the long-term value of LINK.
Additionally, the daily LINK/USDT is hinting at possible consolidation around the $12 price area after an impressive double-digit move from $9.72 earlier this week. If this area continues to hold, LINK could very much be on a path to retest $13 and even $15 if the crypto market environment remains as is for the next few days.
However, ChainLink traders and investors are reminded that Bitcoin has also had an impressive run in the last few days and a correction by BTC will negatively affect all digital assets including LINK. Therefore, the use of stop losses is advised as well as low leverage when trading ChainLink on the various derivatives platforms.
