Looking at the Polkadot price action development over the past weeks, we can see a strong bearish momentum pushing the market from the $28 high to the $13.50 support. Once the $13.50 mark was reached, a quick rejection was seen similarly to the end of May, when the market saw a much stronger push lower.

 After a brief consolidation below $17 resistance last week, DOT/USD retested the $13.50 support once again and started heading higher again. Yesterday, the $17 mark was reached again with a slightly higher high set, indicating that some bullish momentum is building up.

Overall, this price action development indicates that we could see the DOT price reverse higher over the following days and start heading towards the previous major swing highs. However, a clear higher low must be established first as the base from which to make the next wave higher later this week.

Once a higher low is set, we expect Polkadot price to target the $19-20 area next as it is where the market saw strong support earlier in June.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Polkadot price analysis is bearish as a slightly higher high was set yesterday, and the market wants to set a higher low from which to move further to the upside over the remainder of this week. Therefore, the $13.50 previous support is the level to watch right now since a higher low above it could turn the overall market back to the upside.
