Chainlink [LINK] hit its bottom at the end of 2022, with a value of $5.473. It posted a 30% gain into the new year but was later forced into a $6.617 – $6.924 range. However, BTC’s drop to the $20,000 region tipped bears to break below the range.
At press time, LINK’s value was $6.422, and bulls had thronged to buy it at discounted prices. LINK could target its December high in the next few days, but only if the bullish momentum increased.

The December high of $7.682: Can bulls target it?
The 12-hour chart showed a distinct pattern to Relative Strength Index (RSI) movements. Whenever LINK is bullish or bearish, RSI rejection occurs at the mid-range before a successful crossover.
At press time, the RSI faced rejection after retreating from the overbought zone. If the past trend holds, the rejection could see the RSI move to the overbought zone again as buying pressure increased.
Therefore, LINK could target its December high of $7.682, but it must first overcome the hurdles at $6.617 and $6.924. Weak hands could thus lock profits at these hurdles with 10% potential gains. On the other hand, diamond hands could enjoy about 20% gains if LINK hits its December high.
However, bears could breach the current support and push LINK’s value to $6.050, invalidating the above bullish bias. Investors should therefore track BTC movements and FOMC’s announcement at the end of January.
