Do not get carried away

Despite LINK’s price rally in the last week, a key technical indicator has trended downward, forming a bearish divergence.

A bearish divergence is formed when an asset’s price rallies while its CMF trends downward. This means the buying volume is not as strong as expected even though the asset’s price is increasing.

It suggests to market participants that the price rally may not be sustainable.
