LINK/USD 4-hour chart
In order to confirm an uptrend, Chainlink bulls have to push the digital asset above $15.47 to establish a higher high. This level also coincides with the 50-SMA, which adds credence to the bullish outlook. Above this point, there is very little resistance until $18.
LINK IOMAP chart
The In/Out of the Money Around Price (IOMAP) chart shows a strong resistance level at around $15.7, which coincides with the outlook above. The model indicates that a breakout above this point can quickly drive Chainlink price up as there is very little resistance towards $18.
On the other hand, the same IOMAP chart indicates there is not a lot of support on the way down until the area located between $12.95 and $13.39. A breakdown below this range can drive Chainlink price towards $12.
