Polkadot price action has turned bearish over the past week. After a strong spike higher at the beginning of November, a new all-time high was set around $55 on the 4th of November.

From there, DOT/USD failed to reach further upside on the 8th of November, forming a clear lower low. The strong selloff followed, with support found at $43. Reaction higher and consolidation followed around $46 over the weekend.
