The overall market trades in a slightly bullish price action structure over the past weeks after a new several month low was set around the $15 mark at the end of May. Since the Polkadot price retraced by over 70 percent, we can expect that bears are exhausted and DOT/USD should see recovery over the next weeks.

Early last week, we saw DOT set a higher high at $28. From there, the market slowly retraced to the $20 support. After retesting the support over the weekend, DOT/USD reversed to the upside and started pushing the market price higher overnight.

This has led the Polkadot price towards setting a higher high above $24. Therefore, the price action has turned bullish again. If bulls continue moving the market higher with the same momentum, the $28 resistance should be reached over the next 24 hours.

Alternatively, DOT will reverse and retrace to prepare for another push higher after a slightly higher low.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Polkadot price analysis is bullish for today as the market rapidly moved higher overnight and set a higher high above the $24 mark over the last hours. Therefore, we expect DOT/USD to reach towards the next resistance at $28 mark over the upcoming days as the market looks to continue recovering.
