The overall market trades with a bullish sentiment over the past days after a strong higher high at $26 was set on Monday. This comes after a week long retracement from the previous swing high at $28 mark.

Therefore, we can expect DOT/USD to start moving higher once again after a new higher low is established. Based on the previous price action, the higher low could be found around the 50-61.8 Fibonacci retracement area. From there, the next target to the upside is located around $28 mark.

Once the $28 mark breaks, the Polkadot price action is expected to become increasingly bullish once again, likely resulting in a new all-time high above the 49 mark over the following weeks. However, for now, it is best to stay neutral and wait for further Polkadot price action development in the form of reversal.

Alternatively, if DOT/USD moves much lower over the next 24 hours, we could see the market continue moving sideways over the rest of the month as bulls still prepare a base for the next major upswing.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Polkadot price analysis is bearish as the market continued to move lower overnight after a higher high was set at the $26 mark. Therefore, we expect VET/USD to establish a higher low around the 50-61.8 percent Fibonacci retracement level over the next 24 hours, and move higher towards the $28 next resistance from there.
