Analyst Alien Algorithms believes the cryptocurrency’s trajectory tests the upper boundary of an ascending wedge pattern. Per the Chainlink price prediction, the price will move long towards the $40 mark after a breakout.
The chart shows that the cryptocurrency has been ascending inside this wedge pattern since 2018, and the cryptocurrency has tested the upper boundary at multiple instances. The price trajectory suggested by the crypto analyst in this Chainlink price prediction shows that the cryptocurrency will see a breakout soon and rise across the $40 mark. The breakout is expected to follow a retracement and another increase in price before a dump below the wedge pattern. Per the analyst, this price crash for LINK/USD could lead the trajectory below the $1 level over more than a year.
Analyst Tangerine Trader highlighted a rising triangle pattern on the LINK/USD charts. Per the analyst’s Chainlink price prediction, the cryptocurrency will hit the bottom of the triangle soon and then possibly see an upward move. As the trajectory progresses through the triangle, the trading volume and volatility will decrease until the cryptocurrency sees a major breakout towards the upside in the long term. Currently, the price is supported by the 12-day and 26-day Exponential Moving Averages. A breakout towards the upside from this point should allow the price to rise above the $23 to $33 range. The key resistance lies right below the all-time high of Chainlink.
