Chainlink Forms Strong Base of Support as Analysts Eye Move to All-Time Highs

Altcoins 2020/08/26 23:00 by Cole Petersen

Chainlink has been forming what appears to be a strong base of support within the mid-$13.00 region, as each dip here has resulted in it seeing a strong rebound.

This is leading analysts to note that upside may be imminent, as the multiple strong reactions to this level throughout the past several days is a positive development for the cryptocurrency’s short-term technical strength.

One trader is noting that LINK does still face heavy resistance around $16.00, which may result in it forming a trading range between roughly $14 and $16 in the days and weeks ahead.

Another trader is offering a more optimistic outlook on the cryptocurrency, explaining that although it does face some resistance, he expects the strong support just below its current price to act as a launchpad that sends Chainlink up towards $19.00.

This would allow it to erase nearly all of the losses that have come about as a result of its recent weakness.

In order for this possibility to come to fruition, LINK must continue holding above $13.50.

Chainlink Starts Forming Trading Range as Bulls Defend Mid-$13.00 Region 

At the time of writing, Chainlink is trading up nearly 4% at its current price of $14.60. This is around the price at which it has been trading throughout the past few days.

It has dipped as low as $13.50 on a few occasions throughout the past week, but each break below $14.00 has proven to be highly fleeting and followed by an immediate rebound.

This is leading one analyst to note that a trading range may be forming, with the support being the lower boundary and Chainlink’s near-term resistance at $16.00 being the upper boundary.

“$16 was a clear resistance zone as discussed a few days ago. Looking for a scenario like this as we’re constructing a range here,” he said while pointing to the range marked on the below chart.

Here’s How High LINK May Rally if Bulls Defend $13.50

Another analyst explained that he could see Chainlink pushing up towards $19.00 in the near-term, but this strength would be invalidated if it breaks below $13.50.

“If we lose the low at $13.50 before taking the first swing high denoted with the ‘X’, it’s likely we are going to see one more leg down as a ‘wash out’ before we get this leg up I was anticipating. Consider $13.50 the invalidation point for this idea (in the short term),” he explained.

As seen in the above chart, the upside target this analyst is watching for exists in the $19.00 region, which – if it were to be reached – would mark a nearly full erasure of Chainlink’s recent losses.
