It was not until the 13th of January that the price broke above the $10.00 level, rising rapidly to the $15.00 level. The sharp movement caused the price to observe a correction to the $12.50 mark, but the strong bullish pressure persisted.
Subsequently, the price continued to rise, reaching $17.50 before meeting strong resistance. Since then, the Polkadot price hovered below the mark until yesterday when the price fell below the $16.00 level. Today the price found support at $15.00, but it is uncertain whether DOT will hold out above the level.
Across the technical indicators, the MACD shows bearish momentum that seems to be increasing, as highlighted by the increasing size of the histogram.
