Polkadot price action has traded with a strong bullish momentum over the last weeks. After a significantly lower swing low was set around $10.5, DOT/USD rallied by almost 90 percent until the $20 mark.

Since the previous swing high around $17.5 was broken, we can assume that the Polkadot price action has turned bullish once again. However, DOT has shown signs of weakness overnight, and a further higher high could not be set after another strong rally yesterday.

DOT/USD set a slightly lower high and started to retrace over the past hours. This price action development should lead Polkadot towards further downside over the next 24 hours as bears want to test the $17 support once again.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Polkadot price analysis indicates bearish momentum to follow later today after a slightly lower high set overnight and further downside over the past hours. Therefore, we expect DOT/USD to continue lower later today and look to retest the $17 support.
