LINK Long Term Price Prediction: Bearish
ChainLink is a decentralized platform aimed to close the gap between smart contracts on the blockchain and the real-world applications through the use of “oracles”. Since blockchain cannot generate or connect data outside their networks, oracles find and verify real-world data and send it on-chain for integration on smart contracts.
Having spotted as one of the biggest gainers in 2019, LINK later carves a symmetrical triangle, which eventually broke down after the mid-year bear market. Now, the cryptocurrency is trading near a prominent support area – marked grey on the daily chart. This support area of $1.50 is likely to provide a rebound.
A nice bounce would enable buyers to step back in the market as the LINK market could climb back to $2.3, $3.1 and $4 resistance. Nonetheless, the bulls are yet to show commitment as the bearish pattern remains valid at the moment.
However, a drive beneath $1.5 support would confirm a typical symmetrical triangle break to $1 and $0.5 support. ChainLink is currently deciding on whether to break or bounce. We may need to wait for a confirmation before stepping into the market.
LINK Medium Term Price Prediction: Bearish
ChainLink is shaping bearishly inside a medium-term channel. Looking at the channel pattern, a bullish move is likely to play out. This should happen as soon as buyers return to the market. After the channel fakeout in mid-December 2019, the price has remained below $1.98.
LINK, the 19th largest cryptocurrency by market cap is now priced at $1.8. If the buyers can push the price above the channel boundary to surpass the first grey resistance area of $1.98, we should anticipate buying to $2.1, $2.3 and $2.47 in no time. On the other hand, the bearish trend would continue to flag if the current support of $1.7 breaks.
LINK Short Term Price Prediction: Bearish
The recent recovery from the medium-term descending trend line has brought an inverse head-and-shoulder pattern on the short-term perspective. The bullish pattern is yet to complete with a break on the neckline. If such a scenario occurs, the typical projection is $2 considering the price range of the head. Though, LINK is still in a downtrend. We can expect an uptrend soon.
A false move may continue to keep the market in a downward range. In such a case, the $1.75 and $1.69 supports are likely to provide a level for selling pressure. A drive below these supports may cause more weakness in the market. But as it stands now, the bulls are more likely to assume control of the market in a short-term.
LINK appeared to have found support around $1.5. If this support firmly bolsters, a moderate gain is expected to $3 in no time. More so, the inverse H&S pattern on the short-term is an indicator of a bullish move. However, if the supply outweighs demand, ChainLink might remain bearish until buyers regroup well.
