DOT/USDT 1-Day Chart

An early bull mentality should be avoided in the coming days as the technicals show little-to-no evidence to support a countertrend spike. Invalidation of the bearish thesis can occur, but the bulls will need to first hurdle and consolidate above the current range high at $4.65. In doing so, the DOT price could set up a countertrend rally toward the 21-day simple moving average currently positioned at $5. The DOT price would rise by 12% from its current market value if the technicals worked out in the bull's favor.
