Analysts Believe Chainlink is Poised to Rally by 50%+ as It Shows Signs of Bottoming

Chainlink has struggled to maintain its foothold above $10.00, which was lost when the token faced a massive influx of selling pressure that drove its price lower overnight. Bulls have since re-surmounted this level and are ardently attempting to establish it as support. An ability to do this could help create a strong base of support that leads LINK’s price higher in the days and weeks ahead.

This Chart Suggests Chainlink’s Parabolic Rise Isn’t Finished

Chainlink volatility is increasing after the asset fell from its all-time high of $20. A 60% collapse sent the cryptocurrency plummeting, only to see a record-breaking bounce that beat any intraday throughout the rest of the altcoin’s amazing 2020 so far. And although there was a 60% crash, LINKBTC weekly price charts suggest that the asset’s parabolic advance is still intact, potentially pointing to more new 2020 highs ahead. But if the cryptocurrency can’t maintain its upside momentum, the fall down could be substantial. Chainlink’s Parabola Hasn’t Broken On Bitcoin…
