- Chainlink (LINK) is consolidating under a new record high of $42.96
- Chainlink is launching more tamper-proof decentralized oracle networks
Chainlink (LINK) is consolidating under a new record high of $42.96 on Thursday, after a strong advance in the past two days. LINK has recouped losses from previous choppy sessions as investors saw the dip as an opportunity. Recent mild correction and short-lived probe below $40 immediate support on Apr. 15 suggest that bulls remain firmly in play for another attack at the psychological $43 barrier. While market sentiment remains positive, an overbought RSI could prompt a pullback driven by profit takings.

Chainlink has a current market cap of $17.16 billion, with $3.71 billion in trade volume over the past 24 hours.

LINK price daily chart: Bullish
LINK/USD is stabilizing around the record high of $42.96, pausing the strong upside tendency. Daily techs are overbought and suggest that LINK bulls may stay on hold in coming sessions with dips expected to provide better buying opportunities. The RSI has flattened at overbought levels slightly above 70 indicating that the market could weaken a little bit in the short term. Today’s price action is posting an intraday Doji candlestick, suggesting indecision.
If the uncertainty resolves to the downside, immediate support could be found at the day’s low at $ 39.64. Ahead of the MA 50 support at $29.23, support lies at $35.87 and $30.23. Then a leg below the MA 50, LINK price could meet support at the $21 and $17, which overlaps the MA 200.
However, if LINK manages to pick up speed again and jump above the all-time high of $42.96, a bullish breakout above this level could extend the rally to uncharted waters. The next level could come from the immediate psychological number of $43 and $45.
- Supply Levels: $50, $45, $43
- Demand Levels: $35, $33, $30
Overall, the MA 50 and $23.75 provide solid supports which should ideally contain and keep bulls intact. Only a firm break here would sideline bulls for a deeper correction.
