Exchanging hands at $7.08 per LINK at press time, the altcoin’s value went up by 7% in the last week, per data from CoinMarketCap. With bullish sentiments in the market, LINK initiated a new bull cycle on 16 March, when its MACD line intersected with the trend line in an uptrend. Since then, the token’s value has increased by almost 10%.
The commencement of the new bull cycle coincided with the return of LINK bulls. This was confirmed by the asset’s Directional Movement Index (DMI). On 16 March, the buyers regained control of the LINK market as the Positive Directional Index (green) rallied above the Negative Directional Index (red). At press time, the buyers’ strength at 22.50 rested solidly above the sellers at 15.40.
Further, the positions of LINK’s key momentum indicators indicated that buying momentum exceeded selling pressure at press time. For example, LINK’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) and Money Flow Index (MFI) rested above their center lines. RSI was 52.06, while MFI was 58.61, both in an uptrend position.
Moreso, the token’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) indicator returned a positive value of 0.13 at press time. When an asset’s CMF is in an uptrend, the buying volume increases relative to the selling volume. This can indicate that traders and investors have become increasingly bullish on the asset and were even willing to buy on a higher cost basis.
On-chain, the last few days have been marked by a jump in LINK’s Open Interest, data from Coinglass showed. With a corresponding price growth, this was a bullish signal that meant that investors were opening more trade positions.
With funding rates across leading exchanges Binance and DyDX positive in the last week, many investors remained convinced that LINK’s price may continue to see growth.
