LINK/USD: Short Term Symmetrical Triangle
Key Support Levels: $22.4, $22, $20.77.
Key Resistance Levels: $24, $24.70, $25.65.
LINK started the past week following a strong bullish momentum as it surged to a new ATH price of $25.65 on Monday. However, it failed to close a daily candle above resistance at $24.85 and started to head lower from there.
By Wednesday, LINK had dropped into the support at $20.77, the previous ATH Price. It rebounded from there and spiked back above $26 but could not close a daily candle above $23.70 as of yesterday. It had since dropped slightly towards $22, where it trades as of writing these lines.
Looking at the 4-hour chart, LINK is trapped within a short term symmetrical triangle pattern. The next direction is likely to take place upon breakout. In case of a bullish breakout, the first target is likely to be the current ATH.
