What metrics have to say
LINK’s on-chain metrics also looked optimistic, as they too suggested a possible continued uptrend over the days to follow.
CryptoQuant’s data revealed that LINK’s net deposits on exchanges were low compared to the 7-day average, which indicated lower selling pressure.
The transfer volume also witnessed growth over the last 24 hours, which was yet again a positive signal. Interestingly, according to Santimnet’s chart, LINK’s volume skyrocketed over the last few days, further increasing the chances of an uptick.

Nonetheless, a few of the metrics were not in support of LINK, which might cause trouble. For instance, LINK’s MVRV Ratio was lower compared to last week, which is a bearish signal.
The growth of the LINK network also took a sideway path. And, the network’s exchange reserve was increasing, suggesting higher selling pressure.
