Metrics backed the price surge!
LINK’s metrics suggested that several things went in the token’s favor, which might have played a role in its double-digit surge last week. For example, LINK’s Binance and DyDx funding rates remained consistently high, indicating demand from the futures market.
LINK’s network growth also remained up throughout the last week, which was a positive signal. Things remained comfortable on the social front too, as LINK’s social dominance spiked.
CryptoQuant revealed that LINK’s net deposits on exchanges are low compared to the seven-day average, which was bullish as it indicated less selling pressure. The number of active addresses on Chainlink was also increasing, indicating an increase in network users.
Moreover, Dune pointed out that LINK’s popularity of DEXs increased as its trading volume in DEXs went up over the last few weeks.

Will the surge continue?
Inmortal, a Twitter-based crypto analyst, mentioned that bulls could expect a comfortable rally if LINK touches the $9 mark. However, CryptoQuant’s data pointed out that LINK’s price was in an overbought zone, which minimized the chances of a continued uptrend.
Additionally, LINK’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) registered a massive uptick and was heading further above the neutral mark, which is a bullish signal. Besides, the MACD also revealed a bullish advantage in the market, suggesting a continued uptrend in the coming days. However, the Money Flow Index (MFI) was in the overbought zone, which could bring trouble.
