A Brief T.A of ChainLink (LINK)
Doubling checking Coinmarketcap, it can be observed that Bitcoin Cash has reclaimed the number 5 spot from ChainLink.
Checking the crypto charts, LINK is currently hovering above the $15 price zone as support. However, the impressive parabolic run by ChainLink since the 2nd of August is in the midst of a correction that could see LINK continue on a slow fall.
As the days progress, ChainLink’s price intersecting with the 50-day moving average could provide a possible area for a short term bounce. As with all analyses of ChainLink, traders and investors are requested to use adequate stop losses and low leverage when trading LINK on the numerous derivatives platforms.
