Chainlink price eyes 35% gains as LINK flips crucial support level

  • Chainlink price has flipped a hurdle at $24.61 into a support floor, indicating a potential uptrend.
  • If successful, LINK will likely rally 36% to retest the weekly resistance barrier at $33.62.
  • A breakdown of the $18.81 support level will create a lower low, invalidating the bullish thesis.

Chainlink price shows signs that appear before the start of an uptrend. This outlook has supporting factors from both a technical and an on-chain perspective. Therefore, investors can expect LINK to start a bull rally.

Chainlink price faces a decisive moment

Chainlink price rose 88% since November 29, 2021, setting up a swing high at $28.69. This uptrend sliced through the weekly resistance barrier at $24.61 and the trading range’s midpoint at $25.92.

Although LINK flipped the $24.61 support level, the resulting retracement sliced through $25.92 and is currently retesting the $24.61 foothold. Assuming Chainlink price bounces off this barrier, there is a high chance the oracle token will shatter the midpoint and make a run for the weekly resistance barrier at $33.62.

This run-up will constitute a 36% ascent and is likely where this uptrend will stop and retrace before exploring further hurdles.

While things are looking up for Chainlink price, a breach of the $24.61 support level will push LINK down to $18.81. A weekly candlestick close below his barrier will create a lower low, invalidating the bullish thesis for the oracle token.

This development could knock LINK to the range low at $13.38.
