Chainlink (LINK) Price Analysis: Hype is Back And It Brought Bulls Along

So far, Chainlink has had an enviable year. Since last December, LINK experienced a bull run that saw its price rocket nearly 26x. Along the way, Google published a guide on how to use the service with its cloud-based offering and Coinbase and Coinbase Pro listed the coin.

On June 29, 2019, Chainlink reached an all time high of $4.36. Since then, its price has dropped 41 percent.

Chainlink, currently ranked #15 by market cap, is up 8.71% over the past 24 hours. LINK has a market cap of $881M with a 24 hour volume of $235.6M. Majority of trading volume comes from Binance and its two pairs: LINKBTC and LINKUSDT.

Total market cap analysis

Let’s first look at what the overall market is doing. As you know, all coin prices are highly correlated with bitcoin’s price action and by extension with the whole market. Every time we see a surge or plunge of the total market cap, it spills over to the individual coins and their prices.

Market has made a mild recovery yesterday and it hovers around the newly acquired levels today, as it defended the support at $206 billions and is now testing a sturdy resistance at $219 billions (data by Tradingview, CMC data is off by approx +$8 billions).

Should the market break through the $219 billion zone, we could see a swift move up to the $240 billion zone, area from which we saw this horrific drop in the last week of September.

In spite of the minor step back, LINK steered clear of the first major support level which is a confluence point of two moving averages at $2.36.

If Chainlink manages to close above the resistance at $2.52, there are no major roadblocks for it to reach the Fib618 at $3.39.
