  • Chainlink price has lost 25% of  its market value since rallying 67% this summer.
  • LINK price consolidated under relatively sparse volume, hinting that bulls want a better deal.
  • Invalidation of the bearish thesis is a closing candle above $9.65.

Chainlink price has yet to decide if a market bottom is in. A sweep-the-lows event is still on the table.

Chainlink price shows bulls lack interest

Chainlink price auctions near a significant ascending trend channel as retail traders place their bets on the next directional move. Since July, the LINK price has rallied 67%, breaching impulsively through the historical trend line, influencing the Chainlink price since 2020. Following the impressive rally, Chainlink price witnessed a 25% decline amidst what had first appeared to be a profit-taking consolidation mid-August. 

Chainlink price currently auctions at $7.16, just below the ascending historical barrier. The volume profile showed an uptick in transactions worth noting amidst the 25% decline and has since tapered while the price congests  near the $7.00 price zone. Currently, the bulls are trying to reconquer the 8-day simple moving average. Placing an entry before the event occurs would be ill-advised; thus, this thesis remains bearish with a potential sweep-the-low event in the cards targeting $5.19.

Invalidation of the additional 25% decline depends on $9..65 remaining unbreached. If the bulls can produce a daily closing candle above $9.65, they may be able to produce a rally targeting $13 in the short term, resulting in a 90% increase from the current Chainlink price.
