LINK Price in a Descending Triangle
Since reaching a high on July 8, the LINK price has been decreasing — trading inside the descending triangle outlined below.
The descending triangle is a bearish pattern, making price decreases more likely.
At the time of writing, LINK was trading slightly above the support line of the triangle.
Will it break down?
First, we will begin with a long-term view.
We can see that LINK has been following an ascending support line since May 13.
The triangle is significantly higher than the support line.
The lack of a meaningful support area combined with the fact that the descending triangle is a bearish pattern makes a LINK price breakdown more likely.
Furthermore, a look at the moving averages & the MACD supports this idea. A bearish cross between the 10- and 20-day moving averages transpired on July 14.
The MACD followed suit shortly after.
The Chainlink price has been facing very close resistance from the 10-day MA.
Also, the attempt at a breakout on July 17 was stopped once the price reached the 20-day MA.
To conclude, we believe that the LINK price will soon break down from the triangle.
If it does, where will it find support?
In case a breakdown occurs, one support area is outlined below.
The closest support area is found near 17,000 satoshis.
If the LINK price breaks down from the triangle, it is likely to reach this area.
Afterward, this would be a suitable place for the beginning of a reversal.
After reaching a high in early July, the LINK price has been decreasing — trading inside a descending channel.
According to our analysis, it is likely to break down from it and reach the support area outlined above.
