After several unsuccessful attempts at moving above $1.10 trillion, TOTALCAP finally broke out on October 21. The high of $1.13 trillion was the highest since August 15.
TOTALCAP has resumed its increase and reached a high of $1.15 trillion today. If it breaks out from the $1.16 trillion resistance, TOTALCAP can move to the next resistance at $1.24 trillion, an increase of 8% from the current price.TOTALCAP Daily Chart. Source: TradingView
Despite this bullish prediction, a rejection from the $1.16 trillion resistance area can cause a 4% drop to the $1.10 trillion horizontal support.

Chainlink Breaks Out From 500-Day Resistance
The LINK price had fallen under a descending resistance trendline since May 2022. The line also coincided with the $8.50 horizontal resistance area.
Last week, LINK created a massive bullish engulfing candlestick with a magnitude of 35%, breaking out from the resistance trendline in the process.
In the weekly timeframe, there is no significant resistance until the $18 level, which is 70% above the current price.LINK/USDT Weekly Chart. Source: TradingView
However, if LINK loses momentum and fails to sustain the rally, an 18% drop to the $8.65 horizontal support area will be expected.
