Polkadot Price Prediction: DOT is poised for a significant correction to $16, suggests technicals

  • Polkadot price seems to be on the verge of a massive correction as it is quite overextended.
  • Several indicators and on-chain metrics suggest the digital asset must see a pullback before another leg up.
  • DOT bears aim for a low of $16 if all the signals are validated.

Polkadot has reached a new all-time high on February 3 at $19.83 hitting a market capitalization of over $17.4 billion, almost surpassing XRP which stands at $17.8 billion. Unfortunately, many on-chain metrics and indicators show that Polkadot must face a correction.

Polkadot price can quickly fall towards $16

On the 4-hour and 6-hour charts, the TD Sequential indicator has presented two sell signals and it’s about to do the same on the 1-hour chart. Three calls in a row is an extremely bearish indicator that increases DOT’s selling pressure by a lot.

Additionally, DOT has experienced a massive spike in its social volume which is often a big indicator of a potential pullback just like it happened back on January 16 and December 31, 2020.

On the 4-hour chart, Polkadot continues trading inside an ascending parallel channel after getting rejected from the top trendline resistance at $20. In the past, a rejection from the upper boundary has always pushed DOT towards the lower trendline.

Since Polkadot price got rejected again, it will most likely fall towards the lower boundary of the pattern which is located at $16.

However, there is always a chance that the bulls crack the upper trendline resistance at $20. This breakout would have a price target of $24 which is a 20% move from $20.
