Polkadot price continued to rally overnight after a more than week upside from the $10.5 swing low set on the $20th of July. Currently, DOT/USD has gained more than 55 percent as bulls look to retest the $17 previous major resistance level.

This price action development indicates that we can expect further upside latest today. However, once DOT reached the $17 mark, we expect a reversal over the next week.

First support is located around the $15 mark, while much more substantial support is seen around the $13-$13.5 area. In case DOT/USD finds support around the $15 mark, we expect another attempt to move higher over the next week as bulls likely want to set a higher swing high above the $17.5 mark and reverse the slightly bearish price action structure seen over the last months.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Polkadot price analysis indicates bullish momentum to follow over the next 24 hours as bulls continued setting new several-week highs overnight and earlier today. Therefore, we expect DOT/USD to reach the $17 mark next and likely start to retrace some of the gains from there.
