A look at the RSI suggests that the price will soon begin an upward move towards resistance.
While the Chainlink price has touched the descending support line on August 2 and 6, the RSI has been generating higher values.
This divergence is visible in time-frames up to 12-hours.
A look at the daily moving averages (MA) gives a more ambiguous point of view.
A bearish cross between the 10- and 20-day MAs transpired on July 15.
LINK has been facing resistance from the MAs ever since.
However, the price is trading above the 100-day MA, possibly finding support above it.
The combination of these indicators and previous price movement that created a bullish pattern makes us believe that the price will soon move towards the resistance line of the wedge.
Eventually, a breakout seems likely.
