The Polkadot price action continued to decline over the past week after a rally above the $17 mark was seen on the 7th of July. However, bears quickly pushed DOT/USD back below the resistance, with the $15 major support retested.

After several days of consolidation above the $15 support, the Polkadot price spiked lower and started a several-day wave lower. Yesterday, DOT broke past the next major support, around $13, without much hesitation, leading towards a bearish continuation overnight.

Today, DOT/USD saw further downside, with the next round number milestone of $12 reached over the past hours. Since no signs of recovery are seen, we expect DOT/USD to continue moving lower over the weekend and reach the next major support around $10.5 early next week.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Polkadot price analysis is bearish for today as the market broke past the previous support around $13 and is currently set to reach further lows. Therefore we should see DOT/USD reach the next support target around $10.5 early next week.
