On the hourly chart, Chainlink (LINK) is located between the support line of the Bollinger Bands indicator and the basic one. Although the drop remains the primary scenario, one may expect a slight rise to the resistance at $16.95. At that point, there is a high possibility of a false breakout. However, if bulls seize the initiative and fix above $17, the long-term bullish trend will continue.

On the daily chart, sellers are also more active than buyers. At the moment, there are no prerequisites for a possible reversal as the buying volume is low. Thus, the falling channel formed on Aug. 16 has not been broken. In this case, a decline to $14.64 may occur soon if bulls do not seize the initiative.

Chainlink is trading at $16.35 at press time.
