Chainlink price overview: LINK price across the last seven days

Chainlink price turned the year with low volatility as the price oscillated between the $12.00 and the $11.00 level. However, the price crossed above the $12.00 and established a foothold above the level on January 3. The support level enabled LINK to muster momentum for a bullish rally quickly.

Subsequently, Chainlink price volatility increased sharply as Chainlink price leaped past resistance levels climbing past the $14.00 level. LINK faced bearish pressure at the $14.00 level, but the bullish momentum did not disappear, and LINK continued rising after a brief correction to the $13.00 level.

LINK observed strong bullish activity today, with the price rising by over 14 percent from the day’s opening price.

Technical indicators and what to expect from Chainlink price

Across the technical indicators, the MACD shows increasing bullish momentum as the two EMAs continue diverging further. However, the RSI disagrees and suggests that LINK is overbought. The indicator is currently above the 70.00 mark issuing a sell signal.

Overall, across the daily frames, 18 of the 28 major indicators are issuing buy signals while only two indicators issue a sell signal. Meanwhile, eight indicators remain neutral, indicating no support towards either side.

The Bollinger Bands are expanding, suggesting increasing price volatility for LINK in the short term.

Traders should expect LINK to continue rising above the $20.00 level; however, LINK should be expected to observe a correction at the current level. LINK faces resistance in crossing above the $17.00 level.

If LINK leaves the $17.00 mark to climb above the $17.25 level in the next few hours, LINK can be expected to climb to the $20.00 level in the next few days. However, if Chainlink price fails to establish support above the $17.00 resistance level, LINK may consolidate above the $16.500 for the next 24 hours with chances of a bearish breakout.
