The support at $7.075: Can it hold?

Such a move could see LINK break below the $7.065 support level and settle at $7.013 or $6.886 in the next few hours. This would offer short-selling opportunities.
However, a break above the $7.171 hurdle would invalidate the above bias. Such an upswing would tip LINK bulls to break above the bearish order block at $7.306 and retest the selling pressure area of $7.500.
Investors and swing traders should track BTC price action, especially along the $23.5K price level. Any drop below the level would tip LINK bears to devalue the asset in the short term, while a surge above it would push LINK’s value toward $7.306.
LINK’s hourly active addresses spiked, but sentiment turned negative
As per Santiment data, LINK’s active addresses spiked in the past hour, indicating that more accounts were trading the asset, which could boost its trading volume and buying pressure. If the spikes continue, the $7.065 support could hold.
However, any decline in the active addresses would tip bears to devalue the asset. In addition, LINK’s sentiment had dropped sharply and turned negative, indicating that analysts were bearish on the asset. This could undermine bullish momentum in the short term.
Nevertheless, short-term holders still pocketed gains, as evidenced by the positive elevation of 30-day MVRV. But a drop in LINK’s prices could eat away holders’ profits, thus worth tracking BTC price action to gauge the status of investors’ holdings.
