The overall cryptocurrency market over the last hours is slightly in the green. Bitcoin is up only by 0.9 percent after some downside was seen earlier this week. Good performance is seen for TRX and XRP, which are up by 5 and 6 percent, respectively. The previous best performer, VeChain, is down 0.8 percent as the bears have finally regained control.
LINK/USD opened at $25.53 after a moderate gain yesterday. Earlier this week, we saw a rapid move from the resistance at the $31 mark, which resulted in an overall push lower of around 20 percent. Right now, the Chainlink price rejects further downside and looks to test previous support around the $26.5 mark as a resistance. If the market manages to push above this level, we should see further upside over the weekend.
Over the last 24 hours, the LINK/USD price moved in a range of $24.62-$26.63, indicating a decent amount of volatility. Trading volume has decreased by $15.65 percent and totals $1.27 billion, meaning that the market interest has dropped around the current price levels. The market cap still stands strong at $10.7 billion, ranking the cryptocurrency in 11th place overall.
LINK/USD 4-hour chart – LINK finds support around previous support at the $24 mark.
On the 4-hour chart, we can see strong rejection for further downside as soon as the Chainlink price approached the $24 mark. From there on, LINK made a minor correction overnight and tested previous support of $26.5 as a resistance.

Overall, Chainlink has failed to hold the previously mentioned consolidation around the $27-$31 consolidation zone. After retesting the $31 mark for once more on the 20th of March, the Chainlink price pushed lower.
At first, the market found support around the $29 mark, which served as the middle of the consolidation zone pivoting point. However, LINK/USD couldn’t find support around this level and broke lower. On Wednesday, the bearish Chainlink price momentum paused for some time as the market retested $26.5.
After some consolidation, the bears pushed lower again, and the market dropped another 10 percent in a very volatile and strong impulse to the downside. This move led to the previous major support around the $24 mark tested again, resulting in an overall loss of slightly more than 20 percent over a couple of days.
Right now, Chainlink seems to reject further downside as the market got pushed to retest previous support of $26.5 as a resistance. If this resistance holds, we might see another attempt to move lower over the weekend.
The next support for Chainlink to reach is located at the $21 mark. This could be considered as the last support before the overall market structure starts to look very bearish over the mid-term. Hopefully, we will not see the Chainlink price move lower, and the market will hold the $24 mark once it is retested.
Alternatively, if we see the resistance at $26.5 broken later today, we might see further rebound towards the previous middle-of-the-range support/resistance at $29.
Therefore, the Chainlink price prediction is bullish as the market rejected further downside around the $24 mark yesterday and currently looks to move higher. If the Chainlink price momentum can push through the $26.5, we should see further upside over the weekend.
