The biggest losers today are Tezos (XTZ), Paris Saint-German Fan Token (PSG), along Pancakeswap (CAKE).

Also, Bitcoin’s price has dropped today as well. The king of cryptocurrencies wasn’t able to break the $49k mark and, as a result, fell to nearest support at $48k.

The Polkadot price analysis on the 4-hour chart above is done using Bollinger Bands and 50-day and 100-day Moving Averages. The cryptocurrency has not been able to capture the two Moving Averages. We can expect that if the price movement captures the support at $25, an attempt to recover the Moving Averages will be witnessed.

Considering the Bollinger Bands, it is clearly visible that price is trying to break out from the lower end of the Bollinger Band, which signals a bearish trend. While the price had broken out from the upper end on 27th August, we are seeing an opposite motion today.

The Polkadot price analysis on the above 4-hour chart involves the reading of RSI and MACD indicators. The two indicators have utmost importance in making price predictions. For the RSI indicator, the reading is at 40. This shows that the bears are in control of the market but not fully.

The current action is moving with a negative gradient, and therefore, it is possible for the reading to go down lower.

The MACD indicator shows that the orange line or the signal line has taken a position above the blue line or the MACD line, and the histogram has started flashing red as compared to yesterday’s green.

This is a bearish signal, and we can expect the price action to move lower. If the support at $24.5 fails to hold, we can expect a further bearish histogram on MACD.

Polkadot price analysis: Conclusion

While Bitcoin is currently maintaining the position at $47.7k and trying to reclaim the lost support at $48k, we also see Polkadot price movement above the $24.5 support zone. For a detailed prediction on DOT price, you must definitely have a look at the Polkadot Price Prediction.
