On-chain data provider Santiment highlights the Binance funding ratio for Chainlink (LINK) tilted majorly towards the longs.

According to Santiment, the Binance funding rate ratio for Chainlink (LINK) has shifted predominantly in favor of long positions, reaching its highest point in four weeks. As LINK has surpassed the $16 mark, it’s advised to monitor whether a potential fear of missing out (FOMO) triggers a local peak or if prices sustain their upward momentum, potentially heading towards $20 with minimal resistance.

According to crypto analyst Ali Martinez Chainlink is currently trading above a crucial support zone. Notably, over 17,000 addresses have acquired 47 million $LINK within the price range of $14.4 to $14.8. The potential for this level to hold suggests the possibility of a rebound in the near term.

In the weekly chart, the price is currently navigating within an ascending triangle pattern, situated just above the interim support level at $14.66. Additionally, the RSI (Relative Strength Index) exhibits incremental movement while adhering to diagonal support, indicating a potential continuation of the bullish phase.

In the event that market forces successfully maintain the price within the ascending triangle pattern, a breakout above the resistance zone ranging from $16.19 to $16.70 becomes plausible. This breakout could set the stage for an upward trajectory towards the subsequent significant resistance level beyond $17.5, potentially reaching $18 by the conclusion of 2023 or in the early days of 2024.
