The question becomes: What might the ChainLink whales be planning now?
ChainLink (LINK) Price Analysis
After the start of the bear market in November 2021, Chainlink started to plunge from its $37 high. At the end of May 2022, the cryptocurrency hit the $5.8 low and has been ranging between the $5.7 zone and $9.5 ever since.
However, since the end of July this year, the cryptocurrency has been trying to break above the $8 zone, as illustrated below in the charts.
In early August, LINK succeeded in its attempts and broke through this zone. However, after hitting its local $9.5 resistance, the cryptocurrency reversed and fell to its local support of around $6.2.
LINK has been trying over again to break through the $8 mark. During the bullish streak across the general crypto market over the last week, LINK started to pick up strength and managed to rise to the $8 resistance again.
At the time of writing, the cryptocurrency is trying once again to break this level.
Considering the recent move by the whales over the weekend, LINK may just be getting some of the fuel it needs to break through this resistance and possibly hit the $9.5 resistance again.
If the bulls can apply more pressure, LINK just may break out of this level and make the $11.5 zone its next target.
The RSI on the daily chart indicates that the LINK market is approaching overbought conditions, leading to a “fingers crossed” verdict on the crypto. The only thing about LINK’s price action is that time will tell what happens next.
