The overall market still trades with a neutral price action structure over the past weeks after retracing from the previous all-time high of $49.8 during the second half of May. After spiking to the $16 initially, the market saw strong rejection for further downside. This indicated that bears are exhausted and we can expect the market to reverse over the following weeks.

On the 23rd of May, Polkadot moved lower again and set a slightly lower low at $14, from which, another strong rejection was seen. This was the second confirmation for trend reversal. From there, DOT/USD moved higher to the $26 mark, and after some retracement, rallied high to $28.

This price action development was a clear indication that bulls are taking control over the overall market direction. However, the retracement over the past weeks to the $20 indicated that bulls are not yet ready to push the Polkadot price higher.

After another retest of the $20 mark on the 12th of June, the Polkadot price rallied to the $26 mark and established a higher high. From there, DOT/USD started to retrace again with the $22 mark as the potential support target as it is where the 61.8 Fibonacci retracement level is located.

This means that once another small push lower is set, DOT/USD would be ready for a long position entry, with the expectation that the next target above $28 will be reached over the following days.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Polkadot price analysis is bearish as DOT/USD continued to retrace yesterday and found some rejection around the $23 mark. However, after some rally earlier today, the overall market sentiment continues being bearish and we should see DOT/USD move to the $22 mark next.
