However, the liquidity level is still high, which means that there are buyers who still want to buy LINK at the current prices. This is why a short-term rise to $17.44 may happen, followed by a more profound price drop.

Looking at the bigger chart, Chainlink (LINK) made a false breakout at the $18 mark, confirming the lack of buyers to maintain the rise. Although the long-term trend remains bullish, a deep correction is needed to continue the price rise. Furthermore, the buying trading volume is going down, which considers an upcoming decrease. If that occurs, the closest support zone is $16.12, and that may be attained within the next few days.

Looking at the daily time frame, Chainlink (LINK) is trading within the ascending channel that was formed at the beginning of August 2020. The trading volume is not so high as before, which means that the altcoin may decline to gain efforts for a further price decline before updating peaks. To sum it up, the bulls may retest the $18.35 mark before the start of a correction.

At press time, Chainlink was trading at $16.86.
