Chainlink (LINK) Showing Bullish Signs
After surging close to $20.00, chainlink (LINK) started a substantial downside correction against the US Dollar. LINK formed a new all-time high near $19.93 and declined below the $18.00 support zone.
The price broke the key $17.00 support zone to move into a short-term bearish zone. There was also a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $12.19 swing low to $19.93 high.
However, the bulls were able to protect the $15.00 support zone and the price stayed well above the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). It seems like the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $12.19 swing low to $19.93 high is acting as a strong support.
