Polkadot price shows signs of an upcoming correction

Additionally, the TD Sequential indicator presented a sell signal on the 2-hour chart and a green ‘8’ candlestick on the 12-hour chart which can easily transform into another sell signal, adding even more credence to the bearish outlook.

However, Polkadot price is still close to the upper trendline resistance at $25.4. Another breakout above this point would have a 12% price target up to $28.7 if there is enough bullish continuation.
