The whale behind these wallet addresses has previously accumulated LINK and positively influenced the asset’s price. In the second week of February, the whale scooped up 5,587,368 LINK tokens worth $112 million from Binance, via 55 addresses. This was followed by a 15% increase in LINK price, in the same timeframe. 

Among other catalysts, whale activity has therefore emerged as a key influencer of Chainlink price.

LINK price is currently above the 23.6% Fibonacci Retracement level of the climb to Chainlink’s 2024 peak, at $18.81. This level is likely to act as support for LINK in its climb towards the 2024 peak of $20.85. 

In the event of a daily candlestick close below $18.81, LINK price could nosedive to 38.2% Fibonacci Retracement at $17.54, before a recovery.
