The price of Polkadot has been declining for several weeks now. After the previous low of $33 was reached on the 28th of November, DOT/USD gradually receded back upward.

Following a higher high of $40 on December 3, another lower peak was established around $39 on December 10, which resulted in a sluggish drop throughout the first days of the month. On Thursday, DOT began to rapidly plummet. Yesterday’s drop has been extremely quick as well as intraday.

The price of DOT/USD fell to a new low on January 5, 2019, at $33. The previous low was swiftly achieved and clearly broken, paving the way for a considerable decline. Owing to strong selling pressure throughout the night, the Polkadot price dropped below $25 for the first time since its inception.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Today’s price analysis for Polkadot is bullish, as we saw a significant drop ends in a brief rejection from the $24.35 level. As a result, we expect DOT/USD to recoup its losses and approach the previous low of around $33 later.
