Top 3 Coins to Watch Today: LINK, DYDX, ICP – February 25 Trading Analysis

Let’s take a closer look at today’s altcoins showing breakout signals. We’ll explain what the coin is, then dive into the trading charts and provide some analysis to help you decide.

The Chainlink Network LINK is driven by a large open-source community of data providers, node operators, smart contract developers, researchers, security auditors, and more. The company focuses on ensuring that decentralised participation is guaranteed for all node operators and users looking to contribute to the network. Chainlink allows blockchains to securely interact with external data feeds, events and payment methods, providing the critical off-chain information needed by complex smart contracts to become the dominant form of digital agreement.

At the time of writing, LINK is ranked the 24th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$12.50. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

LINK‘s early January spike retraced near $12.46 into the consolidation that began the impulse before bouncing to $14.30. 


This consolidation could provide support again, although bears would first have to push the price through possible support near $12.00. The market’s structure may be shifting bearish, with $13.52 likely to provide some resistance if this is the case. A sustained bearish move could reach the swing low near $11.63 before finding support near $10.71.

However, the bullish higher-timeframe trend might prevail, with relatively equal highs near $16.78 potentially giving an attractive target to lure the price over the monthly open. If so, the price could reach for the midpoint of the December wick near $20.58.

2. Dydx (DYDX)

DYDX is a governance token that allows the dYdX community to truly govern the dYdX Layer 2 Protocol. By enabling shared control of the protocol, DYDX allows traders, liquidity providers and partners of dYdX to work collectively towards an enhanced protocol. DYDX enables a robust ecosystem around governance, rewards and staking, each designed to drive future growth and decentralisation of dYdX, resulting in a better experience for users.

DYDX Price Analysis

At the time of writing, DYDX is ranked the 140th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$4.83. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

DYDX consolidates between $4.60 and $5.90 with the bulk of the volume concentrated in the lower half of the range. The price does not indicate a clear longer-term direction yet as stop orders build on both sides of the range.

Range traders will likely take profits or sell near $5.32. A stop run and swift rejection above $5.74 could provide a more favourable risk-to-reward entry for bears. An old 4h gap around $6.35 might cap this stop run.

Bulls will likely accumulate more long positions on a run below the relatively equal lows near $4.70. Little exists below the current range to identify precise support levels. However, the area between $4.58 and $4.50 could also give support during a deeper stop run.

If the price does break out decisively to the upside, the swing high at $6.15 provides a reasonable target. The highs and daily resistance levels between $6.47 and $6.80 may provide a second target.

3. Internet Computer (ICP)

The Internet Computer ICP is the world’s first blockchain that runs at web speed with unbounded capacity. It also represents the third major blockchain innovation, alongside Bitcoin and Ethereum – a blockchain computer that scales smart contract computation and data, runs them at web speed, processes and stores data efficiently, and provides powerful software frameworks to developers. By making this possible, the Internet Computer enables the complete reimagination of software, providing a revolutionary new way to build tokenised internet services, pan-industry platforms, decentralised financial systems, and even traditional enterprise systems and websites.

ICP Price Analysis

At the time of writing, ICP is ranked the 36th cryptocurrency globally and the current price is US$15.64. Let’s take a look at the chart below for price analysis:

During January, ICP also turned the corner, breaking a key swing high. This move could suggest a longer-term bullish trend.

The swing high near $26.24 stands out as a bullish target and marks an area of probable resistance. Further continuation could reach into possible resistance starting near $31.35.

Even if the bearish trend continues, a stop run at the recent swing low near $15.00 into possible support beginning near $14.67 is reasonable. If the price reaches further down, the swing low and possible support near $13.97 might provide another downside target. 

The area near $13.25 could also provide support. However, a drop this far could suggest a stop run below the higher-timeframe relatively equal lows near $12.80 into possible support beginning around $12.00.
