The Polkadot price action traded with a very strong bearish momentum over the past week. This move resulted from a failure to move higher at the beginning of July after DOT/USD saw a substantial drop at the end of June.

After a slight rally above the $17 resistance, DOT/USD declined and broke past the $15 support. What followed was a rapid decline to the $13 mark first, and after a breakout and retest of the resistance, a further drop yesterday.

This Polkadot price action development has led Polkadot price towards a sharp decline to the $10.5 mark overnight. Over the last hours, we saw DOT/USD taking a pause above the support. However, currently, the market attempts to push DOT/USD below $10.5, which should lead towards a lot more downside later today towards the $7.5 mark next.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Polkadot price analysis indicates bearish momentum to follow over the next 24 hours as the market has seen a substantial decline overnight and currently tests the $10.5 previous major support. Therefore, we expect DOT/USD to drop even further and target the $7.5 support next.
