Chainlink price momentum slows as traders see limited upside potential

Chainlink price action has retraced all of the losses is suffered on last Wednesday’s 11% route. It took a week for Chainlink bulls to recover that loss could be seen as both a bullish and bearish sign. Regardless of how one would interpret that price action, the Ichimoku Kinko Hyo system provides a clear outlook on Chainlink’s current trading condition.

Currently, Chainlink has fulfilled all necessary requirements for an Ideal Bullish Ichimoku Breakout entry: Future Senkou Span A is above Future Senkou Span B, the close is above the Cloud, the close is above the Tenkan-Sen and Kijun-Sen and the Chikou Span is above the candlesticks and in open space.

A hypothetical long trade for Chainlink price would be a buy stop when the daily close is slightly above the most recent swing high-close of $32.56, with a stop loss at $30.00 and a profit target at $45. $45 is the 161.8% Fibonacci expansion of the October 12th low to the October 27th high. Additionally, $45.00 is the top of the prior bear flag channel from June 2021 – which has acted as a primary resistance level for the remainder of 2021.
