Polkadot Technical Analysis: DOT bears tighten their hold, price aims for $4

  • DOT/USD has been on a downtrend after charting the evening star pattern.
  • The 4-hour chart has flashed the buy signal with a red-nine candlestick in the TD sequential indicator.

Polkadot has had three consecutive bearish days after encountering resistance at the $4.70 barrier. In the process, DOT managed to break below the 50-day SMA and is currently priced at $4.35. The sellers are looking to aim for the $4 support wall. A break below that will take the “Ethereum killer” to the $3.75 support level. The MACD also shows decreasing bullish momentum following the recent bearish price action.
