Chainlink (LINK) has gained 10% in the past 24 hours as Bitcoin has continued to hold in the $13,000 region. The popular altcoin currently trades for $12, its highest price in many weeks. The coin is currently the top-performer in the top 10 cryptocurrencies, outpacing Bitcoin’s 1.5% gain, Ethereum’s 5% surge, and the 1-3% performances by the other leading altcoins.
Analysts think that the cryptocurrency is poised to gain even further traction in the days ahead as fundamentals and technicals align.

Other analysts have echoed this assertion.
Another cryptocurrency trader shared the chart later amid LINK’s push higher. The chart shows Chainlink moving above an important horizontal level at $12, which is setting the asset up for a push to at least $13.
“$LINK has emerged from the cloud of red. On to pasture new, and greener. I’m not looking for specific targets (aside from the near term retest of $11.50 and an upper resistance of $13) The green wave is what I’ll ride.”
