The overall market is still bullish when looking at the price action over the past months. However, after gaining more than 70 percent over the end of April and the beginning of May, LINK set a new all-time high at the $53 mark.

From there, LINK/USD started to retrace, with the first low set at the $41 mark. Over the following days, several lower highs were set until the current low of $35 was reached. Therefore, the Chainlink price has retraced more than 33 percent and trades relatively close to the previous major swing low of $30. This could indicate that the several-day retracement comes to an end and we can expect a reversal to the upside later this week.

First, LINK/USD has to establish a higher low, from which to build a base to push higher. Since LINK currently tests the previous major support at $41 as resistance, we are likely to see another push lower over the next 24 hours.

Chainlink Price Prediction: Conclusion 

Chainlink price prediction is bearish as the market could not move above the $41 previous major support that now acts as a resistance. Therefore, we expect LINK/USD to move towards the next support at the $33 mark over the next 24 hours.
