  • Polkadot price analysis is bullish today.
  • DOT/USD continues consolidating overnight.
  • Resistance at $26 tested again.

Polkadot price analysis is bullish today as we expect more upside to follow after the $24.5 mark reversed the previous decline. Likely, DOT/USD will move to break above $26 next and retrace the loss seen earlier this week.

Polkadot price action saw another strong decline this week. After previously retracing to $30.5, where consolidation was formed, a sharp drop lower followed on the 4th of January.

DOT/USD dropped 20 percent until the $25 mark, with further downside reached a day later above $24. Therefore, we assume bears are now exhausted, and DOT could see a reversal over the next days.

The current sideways movement likely has prepared a strong base from which to reverse. Once the Polkadot price action can break above $26 local resistance, we expect to see a lot more upside tested.

Polkadot Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Polkadot price analysis is bullish today as we expect the current consolidation to end with a spike higher. Likely bears are now exhausted, and DOT/USD is ready to retrace the loss seen earlier this week.
