Where will it go next?
Ascending Support Line
Looking at a longer-term time-frame, we can see that LINK has been following an ascending support line since reaching lows close to 8000 satoshis on May 13.
The increase intensified on June 26, and the price reached highs of close to 40,000 satoshis.
However, the recent breakdown has caused the Chainlink price to come closer to the support line.
At the time of writing, the line was slightly below 20,000 satoshis.
A look at the daily moving averages (MA) suggests that the price is likely to reach it.
The 10- and 20-day MAs made a bearish cross on July 14.
The price has been trading below both MAs since, facing very close resistance from the 10-day one.
However, we can see that the 100-day MA is moving upward and approaching the ascending support line.
This further increases its significance and makes it very unlikely that the price will decrease below it.
However, the LINK price decrease will not necessarily follow a straight line.
In order to try and predict future movement, we have identified a possible descending support line that the price has been following since June 27.
The price should decrease at the rate predicted by the new descending support (dashed line) until it reaches the long-term ascending support line.
If an upward move is initiated, it should stop short of the 23,000 satoshi level, where the breakdown from the triangle occurred.
Chainlink Price Summary
The LINK price recently broke down from a descending triangle.
According to our analysis, it is likely to continue decreasing until it reaches the support line outlined above.
