The price is now trading well above the USD 13.85 resistance. A major bullish trendline is also forming on the 4-hour chart of the LINK / USD pair with support near USD 13.50. On the upside, the bulls are likely to face hurdles near the USD 14.50 level.

The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward correction from the swing high of $ 16.43 to the swing low of $ 11.29 is also at $ 14.50 to prevent gains. A significant break above $ 14.50 could open the doors to further gains above $ 15.00 and $ 15.20.

Limited disadvantages?

Initial support for Chainlink’s price is near the $ 13.65 and $ 13.55 levels. The first big support is forming near the USD 13.50 level and the trend line.

If there is a downside pause and closes below the USD 13.50 support zone, there is a risk of a bearish move towards the USD 13.00 support level or even towards the USD 12.50 level.
