Polkadot price analysis: DOT will need to defend $7 support before moving upwards

Polkadot price analysis
TL;DR Breakdown
  • Polkadot price up 2 percent from yesterday
  • DOT still faces bearish hold in the market
  • $7 support could be revisited before uptrend

Polkadot price analysis shows mixed signals on its daily movement, as price recovered slightly from yesterday’s downtrend that lowered price to $7.09. Over the past 24 hours, DOT regained over 2 percent to move as high as current point at $7.54. However, price still remains in touch with support at $7 and further downtrend is likely once price drops below the 9 and 21-day moving averages. Bulls will look to defend the $7 support before gradually pushing price to the boundary of the $7-$7.5 channel. After the expected downtrend, DOT may be able to conjure up adequate momentum to reclaim $8 in the next push.

The larger cryptocurrency market showed signs of consolidation over the past 24 hours, led by Bitcoin’s move past the $22,500 mark. Ethereum also rose 3 percent to move up to $1,600, whereas leading Altcoins showed similar uptrends. Cardano gained a significant 9 percent to move up to $0.53, while Ripple consolidated up to $0.36 with a minor increment. Dogecoin moved up to $0.068, with Solana gaining 12 percent to move as high as $37.89.

The 24-hour relative strength index (RSI) is showing an increased market valuation for DOT at 52.51. Price could be set for correction once the RSI crosses the 60 mark into the overbought zone. However, trading volume over the past 24 hours shows an 8 percent decline to suggest that traders are currently holding the market. The moving average convergence divergence (MACD) curve can be seen forming higher lows above the neutral zone, also showing strength in the market for DOT.

With an increase in buying pressure, DOT price could be in line to push the $8 mark, and then head to further resistance levels at $12 and $13. However, price could move as low as $4 in case of a bearish divergence if Polkadot bulls are unable to hold the market.
