Failed to break out. It’s looking for a higher low & support and then a reversal towards 4500 sats again. I think $LINK is likely to run to $30-40 in the coming months. pic.twitter.com/HtwHogdvsJ — Michaël van de Poppe (@CryptoMichNL) February 23, 2024 However, despite this impressive price gain, the prominent altcoin failed to breach a crucial resistance zone at 0.00480 BTC, thus failing to initiate a breakout. Following this event, van de Poppe believes that Chainlink is now seeking a higher low to serve as its support level.  For context, a higher low In technical analysis refers to a pattern on a price chart in which a successive low point in a trend is higher than the previous low point. It is usually interpreted as a bullish signal indicating a potential trend reversal or continuation of an upward trend. After successfully finding its higher low, van de Poppe anticipates LINK to experience a price reversal, gaining by 4,500 satoshis, which is currently valued at $2.29 at the current Bitcoin price of $50,761. Thus, Chainlink could soon return above the $20 mark. Furthermore, the analyst believes this price gain could lead to LINK finally initiating a breakout, hitting a price in the range of $30-$40 within the next few months. If this prediction proves true, the altcoin could experience a potential maximum gain of 122.71% on its present market price.
