The Polkadot price action trades mostly sideways over the last weeks after a clear several-week low was established around $13.5 at the end of June. From there, DOT/USD rallied higher to $17 and moved sideways over the past weeks.

After a strong spike higher on the 7th of July, the market bounced back to the $13.5 support, indicating that bulls are still not ready for a substantial move higher. This failure to move higher resulted in a strong push below the $15 support overnight.

What followed was a further move lower over the last hours. DOT/USD reached closer towards the $13-13.5 support area, with a slight pause as of now. However, we expect further downside later today and another test of the $13.5 support overnight.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Polkadot price analysis is bearish for the next 24 hours as the previous support of around $15 was broken, and bears moved the market lower earlier today. Therefore, we can expect the next target at $13.5 to be reached over the next 24 hours.
