LINK/USD: Creates Fresh 5-month Low After Market Wipeout

LINK dopped by a steep 64% since rolling over at the March high of $5.02. It found support at $1.72, which is the January low-day closing price as the buyers attempt to prevent further declines. If $1.72 breaks, the cryptocurrency is likely to head beneath $1.50.

LINK-USD Short Term Price Prediction

From below, support initially lies at $1.72. Beneath this, support can be found at $1.60, $1.50, $1.35, and $1.23.

On the other hand, if the bulls regroup to push higher, resistance is expected at $2.00, $2.20, and $2.40.

The RSI is still in extremely oversold conditions, which shows that the sellers remain in complete control over the market momentum. A strong bullish crossover signal on the Stochastic RSI will likely signal that the selling pressure is starting to decrease.
