Chainlink Price Could Take Breather Before Relaunching

At the time of writing, Chainlink price is trading in the red around the $22.59 mark. LINK appears to be battling immediate resistance at the $22.80 area as bears attempt to reverse the gains made over the last trading session.

The four-hour chart shows that the LINK price broke out of the descending parallel channel price range and turned a major resistance level at $$21.80 into support.

This break out pushed the Chainlink price past the $22 mark on Friday. There was a slight pull-back on during the weekend trading sessions but the support at $21.80 held as week closed just above the $22 mark.

A similar pull-back could happen but this time the bulls are counting on the support at the $22 psychological level to hold before making a launch. Note that a session’s closure below the $22 mark could see link slump to retest the $21.80 major support zone before making another recovery.

This pull-back is accentuated by more crypto signals on the four-hour chart.  For example the parabolic SAR just flipped negative indicating a bearish run in the near term. Moreover, the MACD’s movement below the signal and the RSI’s dive towards the midline indicate that a correction to the Chainlink price will occur before the bullish leg continues.
