The overall market price structure is still moving sideways as the $20 support still prevents DOT/USD from further downside. This comes after a strong spike lower in May, which set a clear major low around the $14-$16 mark. From there, DOT/USD made two waves higher to the $28 resistance.

These upswings were the first sign that the Polkadot price looks to finally reverse. However, bulls were not ready at the beginning of June. The market started to move sideways again and set several lower local highs in a slow retracement.

From there, another spike higher was set on the 14th of June. Over the following days, DOT retraced again and retested the $20 support. This means that the overall price action is neutral and a decision needs to be made where the market will move next.

If the $20 support finally breaks, we can expect further movement to the downside with minor support located around the $18 mark. Alternatively, if the $20 mark hold, DOT/USD will likely push higher again and try to reach the next resistance at $28 mark.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Polkadot price analysis is bearish as the market retraced to the $20 mark over the past hours and looks to break through it to set another lower low. Therefore, we can expect DOT/USD to move towards the next minor support of $18 over the next 24 hours and the major support around $14-$16 over the next week.
