Chainlink (LINK) Trimming Gains

This week, chainlink token price started a strong upward move from the $4.625 swing low against the US Dollar. LINK broke a major resistance area near $4.900 and $5.000 to start a fresh rally.

There was a successful close above the $5.000 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). It opened the doors for more gains and the price rallied more than 25%, and outpaced other major cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin and ripple.

The upward move was such that the price spiked above $6.500 and traded to a new monthly high at $6.588. Recently, it started a downside correction below the $6.500 and $6.400 levels.

It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $4.625 swing low to $6.588 high. On the downside, the $6.000 level is currently acting as a support. There is also a connecting bullish trend line forming with support at $5.900 on the 4-hours chart of the LINK/USD pair.

If there is a downside break below the trend line, the price could find support near the $5.600 level. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $4.625 swing low to $6.588 high.

On the upside, the $6.400 and $6.500 levels are important hurdles. A fresh increase above $6.500 may perhaps open the doors for a push above the $7.000 level.

$5.000 As Uptrend Support

If LINK price corrects lower below the trend line support and $5.600, it could start a major downside correction. The next support is near the $5.350 level.

The main uptrend support is near the $5.000 level (the recent breakout zone), which is likely to act as a strong buy zone in the coming days.
