Polkadot price analysis
TL;DR Breakdown
  • Polkadot price dropped over 9 percent on daily chart
  • Price faces severe decline after extended bull run
  • Drop below $8 support could initiate further downtrend

Polkadot price analysis has turned bearish today, as price dropped more than 9 percent over the past 24 hours. DOT seemed to be targeting the $10 resistance after embarking on a strong bull run that initiated on July 26, 2022. During this spell, Polkadot rose up to $9.20 only yesterday, before seller pressure broke the uptrend to correct price down to $8.08. The evening star pattern on the daily chart confirms the change of trend, while the $8 support still remains crucial. If price moves below this point, a steep decline down towards next support at $6.5 could take place.

Ethereum also dropped down to $1,600 with a 5 percent decline. Among leading Altcoins, Cardano slipped 6 percent to $0.50, while Ripple dropped the same amount to move down to $0.37.
