LINK/USD: Technical picture

On the daily chart, LINK/USD slipped under the middle line of the daily Bollinger Band at $7.5. Now this area serves as a local resistance that needs to be taken out before the price can return to $8.10 and the recent recovery high of $8.87 reinforced by the upper line of the daily Bollinger Band. Once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $9.00.

On the downside, the local support is created by $7.00 followed by the intraday low $6.92.  A sustainable move below this area will increase the downside pressure and push the price to the lower line of the daily Bollinger Band at $6.00 followed by 50-day SMA at $5.72.
