Bulls have failed to keep Chainlink above the moving averages

Chainlink (LINK) remains in a downward correction as the price breaks below the moving averages.

Yesterday, the cryptocurrency fell to the previous low at $15, the price level it reached during the price collapse on January 22. The current support is the oversold area of the market. Since January 22, the bulls have failed to keep the price above the moving averages.

A break above the moving averages would signal the resumption of the uptrend. However, on February 7, the bulls broke through the 21-line moving average but were rejected at the $19 high. If price breaks through $19 resistance and bullish momentum continues, Chainlink will regain its bullish momentum. Today, LINK is consolidating above $15 support as buyers pull back for an upside move.

Chainlink indicator reading

LINK/USD is at the 40 level of the Relative Strength Index for period 14. Chainlink is trading in the downtrend zone and is below the 50 center line, meaning it is vulnerable to further downside movement. The altcoin is below the 20% range of the daily stochastic. This means Chainlink is trading in the oversold region of the market. This region will attract buyers who will drive the crypto's prices up.

Major Resistance Levels - $55 and $60

Major Support Levels - $20 and $15

What is the next move for Chainlink?
