Polkadot (DOT) Price:A Recovery Or Short-Term Relief?

The Polkadot (DOT) price has been on a downward trajectory for a fair amount of time. However, it has found strong and consistent support at $6.40 during this time, indicating that the price may have bottomed. 

DOT saw a significant increase on Wednesday and Thursday, which saw the price surpass the 20-day SMA and the 200-day SMA. 

Polkadot (DOT) Rebounds From Support Level 

Since it hit its yearly high on the 14th of March, DOT has registered a drop of over 40% and is some way off from those heady highs. Since then, DOT slid from $11.55 to $8.77 by the 19th of March, dropping below the 20-day SMA. A recovery saw DOT rise to $9.14, but thanks to the 20-day SMA, the price dropped to $8.43 by the 3rd of April. After yet another brief recovery, DOT dropped considerably on the 12th and 13th of April, falling by 13.48% and 11.72%, respectively. This saw the price go below the 200-day SMA, dropping to $6.40.

This was where DOT found strong support, allowing the price to rebound. DOT was back above the 200-day SMA by the 22nd of April, rising to $7.47. However, the 20-day SMA was acting as resistance at this point, and DOT fell back below the 200-day SMA, dropping to $6.73 by Sunday. The current week saw DOT continue in the red, dropping by 2.23% on Monday and 2.43% on Tuesday, ending the session at $6.42. As mentioned earlier, this is a very strong level of support, and DOT rebounded on Wednesday, rising by 7.48% to $6.80, testing the resistance at $7. Thursday saw buyers continue to push DOT higher, with the price registering an increase of 5.65%, going above the 20-day SMA and the 200-day SMA to settle at $7.29. 

Currently, DOT is trading at $7.17, just above the 200-day SMA, as buyers and sellers look to take control of the session. 

Does Double Bottom Pattern Indicate A Revival 

Looking at the Polkadot (DOT) price chart, we see some interesting things. The DOT price chart shows a descending triangle between the 15th of March and the 11th of April, indicating that sellers are in control. DOT then created a double bottom pattern on the 30th of April, indicating the price had bottomed. So, where does DOT go from here? Currently, DOT is trading between the $7.10 and $7.20 mark, with the 200-day SMA currently at $7.19. If DOT cannot stay above the 200-day SMA, we could see DOT drop to $7, where the 20-day SMA could act as support. Should sellers breach this level, DOT could drop back to its support level of $6.40.

Any upward price movement depends on DOT’s ability to maintain its position above the 200-day SMA. If this happens, DOT could test the $8 price level, where the 50-day SMA could act as a strong resistance level. 

What The Indicators Are Saying 

Looking at the indicators, the MACD is currently bullish, indicating a bullish sentiment and supporting the possibility of a longer price revival. The RSI is currently firmly in the neutral zone, indicating DOT has room for a further price increase.

Additionally, the recent DOT price decline saw a number of long positions liquidated, leading to the OI-Weighted Funding Rates registering a considerable decline. The drop in funding rates and DOT’s price consolidation support indicate that the price may have bottomed, and we could see an increase in the value of DOT.
