Therefore, if history is to repeat itself, investors might witness another bull show from LINK in the coming days.
The possibility of a LINK rally is…
According to CoinMarketCap, LINK’s price moved down marginally in the last 24 hours. At the time of writing, it was trading at $14.52 with a market capitalization of over $8 billion, making it the 12th largest crypto.
But before LINK begins its bull rally, the token must go above a key resistance level.
AMBCrypto’s analysis of Hyblock Capital’s data revealed that the token’s liquidation increased substantially when its price reached the $15.4 mark. Therefore, if the token has to increase its market cap, it must go above that mark.
However, quite a few metrics remained bullish, increasing the chances of an uptrend. For instance, as per CryptoQuant, LINK’s exchange reserve was low, meaning that investors were buying the token at press time.
The evidence of high buying pressure was further compounded by other metrics. AMBCrypto found that LINK’s Supply on Exchanges dropped in the recent past, while its Supply outside of Exchanges increased.

Additionally, a look at Coinglass’ data revealed that Chainlink’s Open Interest dropped while its price went sideways. This suggested that the possibility of a trend reversal was high.
However, it was interesting to see that the supply held by top addresses remained flat at the time of writing.
