Chainlink’s LINK token saw a spike in volatility after Robinhood (NASDAQ:HOOD) confirmed its listing.

Key Takeaways

  • Online brokerage platform Robinhood listed Chainlink’s LINK.
  • The token surged by nearly 9% following the announcement.
  • Although the recent gains were lost, LINK looks poised to rebound.

Chainlink’s LINK/USD token briefly pumped and dumped today on news that Robinhood had listed it. Regardless, the decentralized oracles token appears to have the strength to continue trading above support.

Robinhood Lists Chainlink’s LINK

Chainlink’s LINK token is broadening its horizons to a broader range of investors following its listing on the online brokerage platform Robinhood.

American retail trading company Robinhood officially confirmed that it added LINK to its cryptocurrency offerings. This is the first time the platform has listed new tokens since mid-April when it added support for Compound, Polygon, Solana, and Shiba Inu. The new listing may help provide more liquidity to the decentralized oracles token.

LINK jumped by nearly 9% following the announcement, going from a low of $6.70 to an intraday high of $7.20. Prices have retraced by nearly 10%, and the token hovers around $6.50 at the time of writing. From a technical perspective, it appears has yet to gain the strength for a significant movement.

Chainlink appears to be consolidating within a parallel channel on its hourly chart. Each time the token reaches the channel’s upper boundary, it retraces to the lower. From this point, LINK tends to rebound again, which is consistent with the characteristics of a channel.

The recent rejection at $7.20 appears to have encouraged traders to exit some of their positions. Further selling pressure could push LINK to the channel’s lower trendline at $6.30 before a rebound to the channel’s upper trendline at $7.50 occurs. Still, whether Chainlink can hold above the support remains to be seen.

Failing to keep the $6.30 level as support could trigger a bearish breakout. The parallel channel’s width added to the breakout point suggests that a breach of support can result in a 15.7% correction toward $5.30.
