The market today shows great promise, as the price continues to increase after overcoming the resistance. There have been small bearish dips in between, but overall positive increments can be seen in the chart.

LINK/USD is fluctuating between $15.1 and $16.1 today. The previous resistance levels have already been crossed and from here, there is a high likelihood of further growth. However, the growth is expected to be slow.

4-Hour Chainlink Price Analysis – Headed to the $17 mark overnight?

While the market today is quite bullish, $17 might be a long shot. That is because bulls could not push the price as far as they did yesterday. The RSI levels in the 4-hour Chainlink price analysis reveal a slight increase. However, the gradient is certainly not as steep as it was during yesterday’s bull run.

This might indicate that the bulls are inevitably going to get exhausted soon. As a result of this, reaching the $17 mark is not impossible but it is quite difficult. The market is expected to hover around the $15 support and $16.5 before dipping or rising again.

Overall, the volatility is high right now. Hence, it might be difficult to achieve some short-term profits based on the current scenario.

Conclusion – The tables might turn soon

For now, it appears as if the market is enjoying the calm before an upcoming storm. Although MACD and RSI show increasing potential, day-traders would be keen to sell their holdings before Chainlink even hits the $17 mark. After all, the recent dips must have instilled a great deal of fear.

However, considering the high volatility, it is also likely for the market to continue increasing and retest all previous support lines. The next few hours will be critical in determining the market’s direction overnight.
