While bulls have been rallying, the price action suggested bears were still actively on the hunt for a price reversal. However, flipping the $6 level has given buyers a good chance of extending the rally, especially as Bitcoin [BTC] remained above $30k.
Rising demand could encourage more gains for bulls
The emergence of LINK from the year-low of $5 upon a retest took out major bearish roadblocks. A wave of successive bullish candles between 20 June to 22 June took LINK to the bearish trendline.
Although a brief pullback ensued, the strong buying power spurred LINK above the confluence of the bearish trendline and the $6 resistance level.
Looking ahead, a 3.24% increase in Chainlink’s market cap, per CoinMarketCap, could spur more bullish gains. An increasing market cap signifies good demand for a coin, which could cause higher prices.
The Relative Strength Indicator (RSI) highlighted the growing demand for LINK as it stood at the edge of the overbought zone with a reading of 70. The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) posted a bullish crossover on 15 June and has been on an uptrend above the zero mark.
LINK buyers can look to ride on further price gains for Bitcoin to establish a clear bullish trend. However, they will first need to successfully defend the $6 support zone.
