Bears Prevail as LINK Drops to 7-Day Low, Will Bulls Stage a Recovery?


Bears early in the day pushed Chainlink (LINK) prices down to $7.2535. However, Bulls broke the bear rule and pushed LINK price to a 24-hour high of $7.50, where resistance was solid, leading to a 7-day low of $6.81 (support zone).

Bearish momentum remains in the LINK market at the time of writing, leading to a 2.49% drop to $7.06. If bullish momentum breaks through the 24-hour high of $7.50, the next objective for LINK might be the resistance level of $8.00; if negative momentum persists, the support level of $6.50 may be challenged.

LINK’s market capitalization fell by 2.58% to $3,650,181,507 during the downturn, while the 24-hour trading volume increased by 107.96% to $409,995,112. This increase in trading volume implies that investors are aggressively purchasing LINK on the dip, demonstrating a positive mood toward the cryptocurrency despite the momentary price decline.

Compared to the Aroon down reading of 71.43%, the Aroon up reading of 57.14% indicates that the negative momentum in LINK is greater than the bullish momentum, suggesting a possible downward trend in the price of LINK.
