Brief Technical Analysis of ChainLink (LINK)
To provide a clearer picture of the price movement of LINK since September 2017, we can zoom out a bit on the daily LINK/USDT chart courtesy of Tradingview. The chart (below) clearly illustrates how past LINK resistance levels have flipped to become major support levels on a macro view.
Taking a historical look at the daily LINK/USD chart, the following can be concluded.
- The January 2018 all-time high of $1.54 eventually turned into solid support as seen in September 2019 and during the Coronavirus crash of mid-March, 2020.
- The July 2019 all-time high of $4.80 has been a serious resistance zone attempted before the crash of mid-March and could end up becoming the new support zone on a macro scale.
- Trade volume is still in the green and the daily MACD is yet to show sights of exhaustion further pointing to LINK possibly breaking its new all-time high of $6.85.
- MFI points to an overbought situation. Therefore, going long on LINK should be done with caution.
As with all analyses of ChainLink (LINK), stop losses and the use of low leverages is advised. Additionally, keeping an eye out for Bitcoin’s price movement will provide a measure of the fate of the crypto markets.
