Polkadot price action saw the previous bearish momentum slow down over the past week. After another lower high on the 9th of January sent the market lower, DOT/USD only briefly moved lower to $22.5.

From there, the market quickly reversed, returning to the $24 mark. More upside followed yesterday, breaking the previous resistance at $25.5 and indicating a trend reversal forming.

Today another quick push higher was seen to just below the $26.5 mark. Since then, slight rejection for further upside can be seen, likely sending SOL/USD into a retracement over the next days. Potentially a higher low will be set next, confirming the trend direction change.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Polkadot price analysis is bearish today as the market has likely finally peaked below $26.5 after setting a clear higher high. From there, we expect DOT/USD to retrace some of the gains and look to set a higher low next.
