- The gains of the past week were encouraging, but are they enough to shift the tides in bullish favor?
Chainlink [LINK] has a bullish outlook on the short-term price charts. Heading into the weekend, LINK could stagnate at the $6 level as it is both a technical and psychological resistance. However, investors looking for long-term buying opportunities might need to be cautious.
How much are 1, 10, or 100 LINK worth today?
Throughout 2023, the $6.3-$6.35 area has been critically important. It served as support throughout the year but was recently flipped to resistance. The $5.92-$6.1 region was also important. If Chainlink can flip these levels to support, the chances of a rally will brighten considerably.
Chainlink bulls showed intent in the market as a test of $6 looked increasingly likely
The H4 market structure of LINK was firmly bullish. The price posted a lower high at $5.28 on 11 June, but instead of following the previous downtrend, the LINK prices ascended slowly thereafter. Not only did LINK retrace to the 50% level at $5.42, but it also managed to break out past that resistance over the past three days.
The move to $5.42 was followed by a drop to $4.99 on 19 June, which appeared to shift the market structure to bearish. Yet this turned out to be a deviation as the price shot higher over the past few days.
While the RSI reflected the strong gains, the OBV was not similarly enthusiastic. It climbed to new highs after a lack of activity from 12 to 19 June but remained beneath local resistance. This suggested demand might not be enough yet to initiate a rally. To the north, the H4 bearish order block at $6.26 and $6.6 can reject bullish advances.
The Open Interest showed hefty short-term bullish intent
The price action of Chainlink showed that a move to $6 was possible and even likely. But the evidence from Coinalyze showed otherwise.
