- LINK/USD is largely in the hands of the bulls but higher support above $14 is need for the final leg up to $18.

Chainlink top-non exchange holders waiting patiently for a breakout
According to Santiment, Chainlink’s top non-exchange holders have accumulated a total of 768 million tokens. This number of LINK tokens is shy of their recent all-time high of roughly 771 million coins. The chart provides prints a gradual accumulation pattern that is looking very solid. It is intriguing that LINK holders have been adamant to capitulate to the surging Bitcoin.
The Relative Strength Index is almost piercing its way into the overbought region, which emphasizes the improving bullish picture. On the other hand, on-chain metrics show that buying pressure behind LINK is also on the rise.
At the moment, all attention is channel toward lifting above $14 and establishing higher support. The final leg to $18 will come as a result of the fear of missing out (FOMO) and greed among investors who currently anticipate Chainlink to hit new all-time highs before the year ends.
LINK/USD 4-hour chart
It is worth mention that the bullish narrative will be invalidated if LINK closes the day under $14. On the other hand, a retest of the x-axis must hold to ensure that bulls do not lose focus of the ultimate lift-off to $18 and $20, respectively. A break under the a-axis might seek refuge at the 50 Simple Moving Average, 100 SMA, and 200 SMA.
