Chainlink Price Analysis: LINK consolidates above $10.50 between strong support and resistance levels


  • The 100-day SMA has crossed above the 50-day SMA to chart the bearish cross.
  • The MACD shows decreasing bullish momentum.

The 100-day SMA has crossed above the 50-day SMA to chart the bearish cross pattern. Adding further credence to the bearish outlook is the MACD, which shows decreasing bullish momentum. As per the IOMAP, the price is sitting on top of healthy support at $10.35, wherein 6,750 addresses had purchased 29 million LINK.

If the price breaks below this level, LINK bears will next have to contend with a moderate support wall at $10.35. If the price breaks below all these zones, it will be quite catastrophic since it will drop down to the 200-day SMA ($7.50). The whales have also contributed to this selling pressure.

The number of addresses holding 1 million to 10 million tokens went down from 51 on October 8 to 59 on October 10. Since then, the whales have remained dormant.

The Flipside: Can the bulls take back control?

As per the daily chart, LINK faces immediate resistance at $11.15, which is the point of intersection of the aforementioned bearish cross. If LINK breaks above that, it should move to $12 before facing a moderate resistance obstacle. A break above these obstacles should take the price up to $14. 

Key price levels to watch

If LINK breaks below the $10.35 support level, a lack of moderate and robust walls should take the price down to the 200-day SMA ($7.50).

If LINK bulls somehow manage to get enough momentum to break above the $11.15 resistance line, the price will be able to reach $14.
