LINK/USD: Technical picture
As we have previously reported, LINK retreated from grossly overbought levels. The downside momentum may gain traction in the short run, however, the future remains bright as kong as the price stays above $7.00. A sustainable move above this level created a strong upside bias that brought the price to the new all-time highs; now it serves as strong support that is likely to attract new buyers. If it is broken, the sell-off may be extended towards $6.63 (1-hour SMA100) and psychological $6.00 (1-hour SMA200 on approach).
On the upside, the initial resistance is created by the intraday high of $7.40, followed by $8.00, the recent high of $8.49. Once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on Monday’s high of $8.49. Above this area, the coin is mostly in uncharted territory with the next aim at $9.00 and potentially $10.00.
