LINK is on the rise, reaching a high of $19

The price of Chainlink (LINK) is in a downward correction. The cryptocurrency's price has fluctuated between $17.20 and $23 since the price collapsed on December 4.

During the slump, the altcoin plummeted to a low of $15 as bulls bought the slump. Over the past two weeks, the bulls have defended support at $17. The bears retested support three times but were unable to break it. In July, $17 support was breached as Chainlink fell to a low of $13.43 on July 20. 

The cryptocurrency recovered from the $13 support and rose to a high of $36. Today, it is unclear whether the current support will hold. The altcoin could fall to a low of $15 if sellers break the current support. On the upside, a break above resistance at $23.00 would take the altcoin above the moving averages. Meanwhile, LINK is on the rise, reaching a high of $19 at press time.
