Chainlink (LINK) price is currently revisiting the support level at $11.67 as bears continue to dominate short and mid-term charts. While the buyers have attempted at an upwards rally, the increasing bearish pressure does not allow that to happen.

Chainlink trend analysis

Chainlink price falls below $12.50 support, further downward movement in sight 1

Chainlink price had a strong start to November as the price action was guided by the bulls. Initially the price moved downwards but the buyers found a strong foothold at the $10.00 level enabling the bulls to fight back.  

As the price rose above, the bearish pressure increased causing the price action to stagnate around the $13.00 level. The bearish pressure caused the price to decline to the $12.00 support which enabled the bulls to replenish themselves and continue the bullish rally.  The price eventually rose to $16.00, a level it has not seen since the start of September.

The trend then observed a complete reversal as the bulls were thoroughly exhausted. Chainlink price declined sharply to support level at $11.60. While the buyers did attempt at a V-shaped recovery, the attempt was crushed by the sharp bearish pressure causing the trend to capsize once again. 

Since then, the price has continued to be dominated by the bears with the trend moving in a wavelike pattern. As shown in the above image, LINK price is moving inside a flat bottom triangle with key support at $11.70.

Where is Chainlink price heading?

The RSI shows that there is still room for downwards movement as the indicator still remains neutral. However, the indicator hangs low suggesting that sharp bearish movement would enable the buyers to start a trend reversal. Currently, the MACD is bearish but suggests very little momentum as the tow EMAs move close together.

Overall, while the indicators remain bearish, the indicators show little potential in a bearish rally. Coupled with the positive market momentum, traders can expect Chainlink price to breakout above after consolidating for the next few days as the triangle reaches its climax.

Moving above strong resistance level lies at $13.50 and $14.00 respectively. Conversely, if the price experiences a downwards breakout, LINK USD price can be expected to crash towards the $10.00 level.
