A look at LINK’s price action on the 12-hour timeframe highlighted the $6 support as a key level for bulls. Bulls rallied strongly from the level in early July, reaching the $8 price level before bears took over.
The easing of the selling pressure at the key support hinted at waning bearish momentum. Based on the historic bullish tendency at the level, buyers could take advantage to rally strongly.
The chart indicators supported a bullish move. The Chaikin Money Flow remained above the zero mark since 24 August with a positive reading of +0.05. This showed consistent capital inflows over the period. While the Relative Strength Index stayed under neutral 50, it moved clear of the oversold zone. This pointed to rising demand for LINK.
A bullish rally from this support would see buyers target the $6.5 to $7 level for profits. On the flip side, a bearish break below the support could see a free fall to the June low of $5.

As of press time, longs held a 50.63% share of the open contracts worth $17.5 million dollars. If Bitcoin maintains its bullish reversal, it could strengthen LINK buyers in the short term.
