Polkadot price analysis: DOT RSI in severe oversold zone on daily chart
On the 24-hour candlestick chart for Polkadot price analysis, price can be seen facing a retestment towards the support zone at $15.02. After recording an uptrend yesterday to move up to $15.50, traders quickly looked to gain short-term profits as sell-offs initiated. This pushed price down again today, recording a low of $14.65. The crucial 50-day exponential moving average (EMA) sits well above at $16.33, which would be the expected upper target if DOT can consolidate momentum.
The 24-hour Relative Strength Index (RSI) fell into the oversold zone after moving down to 33.71. The current market valuation for DOT is further weakened by the loss in trading volume up to 12 percent. Meanwhile, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) curve continues to form higher lows below the neutral zone and provides further bearish outlook for DOT. If a trend reversal occurs, DOT will look to move as high as $15.60 where the next demand zone is set. A further increment would see the $16 resistance tested to reach April 26 high of $16.71.
