Polkadot price action has traded with a strong bearish momentum over the past weeks after a spike above the $17 mark was seen on the 7th of July. From there, DOT/USD moved back to $15 support and consolidated for several days before continuing lower.

However, support was finally found around the $10.5 mark on the 20th of July. DOT/USD rallied by more than 30 percent over the past days to retest the $13.6 previous minor support as a resistance. 

From the $13.6, we can expect DOT/USD to reverse back to the downside as bulls are exhausted. Therefore, the next target for Polakdot is seen around the $10.5 mark, which, when broken, would send the market towards a lot more downside over the next weeks.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Polkadot price analysis indicates bearish momentum to follow over the next 24 hours as bulls could not push DOT/USD any higher. Therefore, we expect DOT to start declining later today and try to reach the $10.5 support once again.
