Polkadot price action traded within a strong bullish momentum over the last few days after a strong decline was seen earlier this month to the $10.5 mark. DOT/USD lost more than 40 percent during the last downswing, with most of it currently getting reclaimed by a bullish retracement.

Previously the $15 mark acted as a powerful support level. Polkadot price approached to retest this previous support as a resistance earlier this week, indicating that we could see reversal around this area.

Since the overall market trades with strong bearish momentum, DOT/USD is likely to set another wave to the downside along with the overall trend. Therefore, as long as the $15 mark is not breached, we expect Polkadot to see a lot more downside over the following weeks.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Polkadot price analysis indicates bearish momentum to follow over the next 24 hours as the $15 resistance gets retested for the second time with a rejection for further upside. Therefore, we expect DOT/USD to retrace later today and test the $13.5 support next.
