  • $26.23 support floor also remains in touching distance which will invalidate the bullish thesis

Polkadot price analysis for the day shows price dropping more than 3 percent on the day to sit at $28.58 after observing majority sell offs yesterday. DOT will look to relaunch towards $36.89 to record a 30 percent increment, but is set to face resistance at the $32.78 hurdle. Price rose 17 percent from December 31 to January 3 to set at $30.88, before receding down to $29.07 at the start of today’s trade.
