Chainlink now bigger than Litecoin as LINK price hits new high above $24 — What’s next?

Chainlink (LINK) remains to be one of the best performing cryptocurrencies in the past twelve months. As of Jan. 23, LINK is now bigger than Litecoin (LTC) and now number seven at $9.2 billion market capitalization, after surpassing Bitcoin Cash earlier this week.

The LINK price surge also coincided with rumors this week that Grayscale is preparing to add a Chainlink Trust product. This news event likely played a part in the price of Chainlink rallying toward new all-time highs, making LINK, once again, one of the best performing cryptocurrencies.

The daily chart for Chainlink shows massive volatility in recent months, but also some beautiful price action.

Every previous level of resistance flipped for support, after which the price continued climbing almost in textbook fashion. That’s the beautiful nature of price action and trading in general.

Most people have the impulse to enter a position when the price is soaring. But those support/resistance flips actually give the best entries. Specifically, the first support/resistance flip occurred at the $10 level, after which the same happened with the $13 and $17.30 areas.

Therefore, the crucial level to watch for potentially more downside is the $17.30 area, as well as the $19.50 zone. This latter area is the previous all-time high in 2020 and possibly the point of the next support/resistance flip, which would be bullish for more upside.

Using this indicator, the first zone is between $29-31, which aligns with both of the Fibonacci extensions. The second zone is at the 2.618 Fibonacci extension of $39 and the last one is found at the $42 area….
