LINK/USD opened at $39.05 after a strong rally from the $33 support yesterday. Overnight, the market started to reverse, indicating we might see another push lower later today. From the past 3 lows, a descending trendline has been established, meaning that we can expect further downside until it is broken.

Overall, Chainlink has performed well over the past weeks. A total gain of around 85 percent was seen from the $24 low, set on the 24th of April. After a sharp spike higher last week, a new all-time high was set at the $44 mark. From there, the market consolidated for several days.

After a retest of $44 on Saturday, LINK/USD made a strong push lower until support was found around the $33 mark. After a brief move higher and another retest of the $33 support, LINK retraced most of the previous loss on Sunday and set another lower low at $42.

The extreme volatility continued on Monday, and another spike lower was made, this time with a brief break below the $33 support. However, bulls quickly picked up any further selling pressure, and the market reversed to set another lower high below the $40 mark overnight.

Currently, Chainlink looks to move lower again as further upside was not seen below the resistance. Since a descending trendline of resistance was confirmed with the last lower low, we can assume LINk will continue moving lower until a clear breakout is seen. 

If the market sets another higher low above the $35 mark, we should see the market trade in an increasingly tighter range over the remaining week. As the overall medium-term bullish movement has been retraced by around 25 percent, we don`t expect much further downside. Therefore, the best option is to wait for further Chainlink price action development in the form of a higher high. 

Chainlink Price Prediction: Conclusion 

Chainlink price prediction is bearish as resistance below the $40 mark was found overnight. Additional resistance is provided by the descending trendline, which, until broken to the upside, indicates that we will see further downside later today. Therefore, we expect the $35 support to be retested again later today.
