It is currently consolidating losses (similar to Ethereum and ripple), but facing a couple of key hurdles. It seems like is a crucial contracting triangle forming with resistance near $12.00 on the 4-hours chart of the LINK/USD pair.

More importantly, there is a potential head and shoulders pattern forming with support near $11.40-$11.50. If the price climbs towards the $12.40 resistance and fails to continue higher, there is a risk of a sharp decline. In the stated case, the price could decline heavily below the $11.40 support and the 100 SMA.

Fresh Increase?

If chainlink’s price breaks the triangle resistance and accelerates above the $12.40 resistance, it could invalidate the mentioned bearish scenario.

The next major resistance on the upside is still near the $13.00 zone. A successful close above the $13.00 level might open the doors for a push towards the $15.00 resistance in the coming days.
