  • Chainlink resumes the uptrend after finding support at $10.
  • The spike in network growth has given the bullish narrative credence.

Chainlink emerged as one of the biggest gainers this week, rallying from the dip under $10 to highs above $13.50. The rally took place amid the tension created in the markets by the United States presidential elections. A correction from the resistance at $13.50 appears to have established higher support at $11.50. At the time of writing, a reversal is underway, with the price almost crossing $12.50.

Chainlink recovery could surpass $13.50

As mentioned earlier, Chainlink is trading at $12.4 after building upon the 100 Simple Moving Average (SMA) support. The bullish case is reinforced by the Relative Strength Index motion towards the overbought area. Closing above the resistance at $13.50 would encourage more buyers to join the market and pull LINK towards $20.
