The stop-loss order was placed at the $11.046 level. The Adam and Eve pattern is a bullish indicator, and the price rises towards the top after forming an inverted curve towards the downside. While the price did not follow the expected trajectory sketched in the Chainlink price prediction by Tadej. In the long-term, the analyst expects the price to grow until it hits the $12.98 level.

The Adam and Eve pattern that came into play on the 31st of December and the 1st of January does look a bit deformed, per the analyst, which is due to the stop hunting. The analyst stated that the stop-loss should have been placed near the $10.78 mark or lower to avoid the deformation. However, the price observed a jump on the 1st of January and is expected to head upwards.
