Polkadot’s price action has recorded rapid bullish momentum over the past month. From the previous July swing low of $10.5, DOT/USD went up by over 250 percent to the $35 mark.

However, buyers could not successfully cap more gains, after several weeks of consolidation, DOT reversed. After a drop of 15 percent, support was found above $29.40, and later the coin would reverse once again above $30.

Polkadot has since retested the  $30 multiple times, with the $29 mark acting as seller resistance. With the last one seen yesterday on the 2-day chart. As long as the support holds, we can expect the Polkadot price to reverse later today and quickly advance to $38.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Our 24-hour Polkadot price analysis is bullish and indicates positive signals above $35. We expect the coin to prepare for further upsides as the DOT/USD rallies higher and higher in the second week of September.
