LINK was heavily bullish on the 12-hour chart.
Short-term selling pressure increased.

Chain link [LINK]like most altcoins, managed to recoup losses incurred in mid-March amid the US banking crisis and general market uncertainty.

It rose from $6, consolidated, then surged to $8.5 at the time of writing. Overall, LINK was up more than 40% since mid-March, but had hit a major price cap in Q1 2023 that could invite sellers unless Bitcoin [BTC] remains bullish.

A likely new high or an imminent pullback?

LINK’s first recovery period ended in a price consolidation between $6.86 – $7.64. The second leg of the recovery broke above the parallel channel and reached the bullish target of USD 8.4, helping LINK regain its Q1 2023 level. The level was also an important resistance level in September 2022.

As such, the uptrend momentum could slow or enter a pullback, especially if BTC fails to regain the $30,000 level. If so, LINK could return to $7,947 or the former channel’s upper limit of $7.64. The dynamic 50-EMA and 200-MA support levels could check any further decline below $7.64.

A session that closes above $8.5 will be voided. Such an uptick, especially if BTC climbs above $30.4k, could lead LINK to target its pre-FTX levels of $9.0-$9.5.

Meanwhile, RSI and the stochastic RSI have reached the overbought zone, reinforcing bullish sentiment. But the overbought condition may prompt bulls to take a break to cool off from the recent rally.

Nevertheless, the ADX (Average Directional Index) rose sharply, indicating a stronger upward trend at the time of writing.

Trading volumes and selling pressure increased

LINK’s trading volume fell to its lowest level around April 9. After that, it improved despite some fluctuations, as evidenced by the active addresses (yellow bars). In addition, funding rates remained positive, reinforcing good demand and optimistic outlook from the derivatives market.

However, there was mounting short-term selling pressure despite LINK’s bullish momentum, as indicated by rising supply on exchanges.

In addition, the drop in off-exchange supply, at the time of writing, showed a decrease in accumulation as some investors lock in short-term gains.
