Other 2020/08/20 09:48 by Aayush Jindal

Chainlink (LINK) started a sharp downside correction from the $19.93 high against the US Dollar. It is now trading above the $15.00 support and eyeing a fresh surge above $17.00.

  • Chainlink token price is trading above the key $15.00 support zone against the US dollar.
  • The bulls are facing a couple of important hurdles near the $16.95 and $17.00 levels.
  • There is a key bullish trend line forming with support near $15.40 on the 4-hours chart of the LINK/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair is likely to start a fresh surge once it clears the $17.00 resistance zone.

Chainlink (LINK) Showing Bullish Signs

After surging close to $20.00, chainlink (LINK) started a substantial downside correction against the US Dollar. LINK formed a new all-time high near $19.93 and declined below the $18.00 support zone.

The price broke the key $17.00 support zone to move into a short-term bearish zone. There was also a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $12.19 swing low to $19.93 high.

However, the bulls were able to protect the $15.00 support zone and the price stayed well above the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). It seems like the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $12.19 swing low to $19.93 high is acting as a strong support.

Dips Supported
