LINK/USD – Bearish Momentum Reaches Oversold Conditions
Key Support Levels: $8.67, $8.05, $7.66.
Key Resistance Levels: $9, $10, $10.40.
Five days ago, LINK penetrated beneath crucial support at the $10.40 level (downside 1.618 Fib Extension), which stalled the market decline during the early September price fall. Since then, LINK broke below $10 and continued down until it found support yesterday at the $8.67 level – the July high-day closing price.
LINK had spiked lower toward $8.20 yesterday, but the bulls recovered to allow the daily candle to close above the aforementioned support at $8.67.
With LINK creating another fresh low for September yesterday, it does seem like the buyers have left the market. If the sellers push beneath the $8.00 level, LINK can be expected to continue much lower until support is met around $6.00.

LINK-USD Short Term Price Prediction
If the sellers push beneath $8.67, the first level of support lies at $8.05 (downside 1.414 Fib Extension). This is followed by support at $7.66 (.886 Fib Retracement), $7.00 (July support), and $6.60 (downside 1.618 Fib Extension). The last level of support to highlight lies at $6.00 as the rising trend is located here.
On the other side, resistance first lies at $9.00. Beyond this, additional resistance is found at $10, $10.40, $11.90 (bearish .382 Fib Retracement), and $13 (bearish .5 Fib Retracement).
The RSI has finally reached extremely oversold conditions and has bounced slightly. This could suggest the sellers are overextended and might take a break from their bearish activity. Additionally, the Stochastic RSI is in the process of producing a bullish crossover signal.

Unfortunately, the buyers could not defend this support as LINK penetrated beneath the trend line and continued lower until it reached the support at 0.000826 BTC (.618 Fib Retracement).
